2012 01 31 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year

The Competition

PinkLadyFoodPhotograpgeroftheYear2012Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year is inspired by the proliferation of wonderful food photography in a huge variety of applications. From eye-catching advertising hoardings, to sumptuous editorial features, from tempting food packaging to daily blogs. The Awards celebrate this magnificent diversity in what is truly, the stuff of life.

The Awards seek to single out not only technical skill, but originality of treatment and a real sense of connection with the subject matter whatever it may be. Whether simply an apple on a plate, a cake of spun sugar, a baker covered in flour at four in the morning, or a pot simmering on an open fire in the African bush.

We are looking for professional and amateur alike, in our search for the very best depictions of this marvellously varied subject of food, which unites us all.


The overall winner of the title Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2012 will receive £5000 and a trophy.

Category winners will receive a trophy and voucher for camera equipment.

Winners of the three Young category age-groups will receive £100 each.

An evening reception to announce the winners will be held in April 2012 at the world-renowned Mall Galleries in London, SW1. The winners of each category and the runners up will have their work shown in an exhibition open to the public from Wednesday 25th until Saturday 28th April 2012.
