Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2016

Open to professional and amateur, old and young, the Awards celebrate the very best in food photography and film from around the world.

The Finalists are invited to a magnificent Champagne Taittinger reception at the world-renowned Mall Galleries, London followed by a five-day public exhibition.

The prize pool is worth £8000 and Finalists benefit from huge amounts of coverage of their work.

The categories cover the full cultural range of the depiction of food in society – there is something for everyone. From styled food for magazines to images of families eating together in celebration of religious festivals, from depictions of the realities of food production to food growing in its natural setting.

Since 2011, more than 20,000 images have been submitted from across the world and almost 500,000 people visited the Awards website.

Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year was founded by Caroline Kenyon and her team at The Food Awards Company, a Luke Johnson backed venture.

The idea for the Awards arose from two decades of experience commissioning photography and the wish to see this wonderful and vibrant sector of photography given the recognition it deserves.
