ALL images entered are viewed by a smaller panel of judges drawn from the main judging panel, to create the shortlists.
Some of the categories offer specific opportunities for the category winner, such as Pink Lady® Apple a Day, while many other Finalists have found that work opportunities have come to them as a result of the prestige of having an image or film chosen for the Winners’ Exhibition at the Mall Galleries.

How to Enter
Pink 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 Pink Lady® Food Photography 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 photographers alike, in our search for the very best depictions of this marvellously varied subject of food, which unites us all.
