The Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition is under way for the second year in a row.
This international celebration of art food photography opened for entries on 11 June 2012 and this year’s awards has several exciting new categories for entrants, including the Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year, for images of wine, producers and all things related to wine. Also, the Food Sn-apping category, for images of food taken on mobile phones, in support of Action Against Hunger, and Food off the Press, for previously published work in books and magazines.
Black Pigs by Jean Cazals, last year's overall winning image.
The first prize for the overall winner is £5000, and judges for this year include Antonio Carluccio, Edwin Booth, Chairman of Booth’s Supermarkets, Ellen Silverman (Gwyneth Paltrow’s food photographer), Jay Rayner, food writer and broadcaster, Alison Clarke, Editor of Cravings (Australia’s leading food title), Joanna Simon, award-winning Wine & Food Editor, House & Garden, and Neil Christie, MD of Wieden & Kennedy (the advertising agency behind the award-winning Lurpak campaign).
The competition closes on 31 January 2013, and shortlisted entries will be announced on 20 March 2013. Winners will then be announced at the Mall galleries on 23 April 2013.
