Plate Restaurant Photography Competition

12 Jul 2018 3:00PM
To celebrate National Photography Week, 23-29 July, Plate Restaurant in Shoreditch is offering aspiring foodie photographers the chance to further their career with an exclusive competition.

All those taking part will be able to claim a 15% discount from their bill and the winner will get to enjoy a one on one tutorial session with award winning food photographer, Cath Lowe, in addition to dinner for two at the restaurant.

Located at London’s M By Montcalm, Plate offers ‘fine eating’ with a French and English inspired menu that focuses on beautiful food with an accessible price point.

During National Photography Week food-loving amateur photographers are invited to post images of their dishes and drinks from the menu to their Instagram page accompanied by the #platephotocompetition.

The images will then be judged by an expert panel, comprising Plate’s Head Chef, Arnaud Stevens, Cath Lowe and some of London’s leading foodie instagramers, bloggers and influencers including @London.Foodguide, and Beth Webb from ‘Is This Seat Taken?’.

Photographer Cath Lowe has a wealth of experience and was named Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year last year. She was also second in M&S portrait 2017, first in Pink Lady Apple section 2015 and third in Wine 2014.

The prize will give the winner the opportunity to meet with Cath for a two hour food photography class where she will give tips on the best techniques and skills to get the perfect shot, as well as offering invaluable knowledge about how to get ahead in the food photography industry. The winner will also have their work featured on the judging panels’ social media channels and the Plate website.

To take part in the competition, diners need to book a table for lunch or dinner during National Photography Week, 23 – 29 July, and upon arrival notify the team that they are taking part in the competition, securing them 15% off the bill.

They then should order from the menu and take as many photos as they wish and post them to their Instagram accounts with the hashtag #platephotocoompetition. These images will then be captured and forwarded onto the judges. The winner will then be announced on Wednesday 1 August.
