Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year

Winning images and more from the 2018 Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year contest

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 more than £20,000 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, almost 40,000 images have been submitted from over 60 countries.

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.

“We are extremely proud that Pink Lady®, the premium global apple brand, has been headline sponsor since the awards were launched.”

Whether plates are prepared through molecular gastronomy in the foremost restaurants around the globe or through simple, rustic methods in your own kitchen, beauty can lie within any preparation. As a society connected through social media, more and more people take and share photos of their food, further connecting us all through the love of the perfect bite. As a food writer and culinary explorer, I have had the privilege of feasting on wonderful dishes by some of the world’s most renowned and respected chefs. Having the honor to gather the gorgeous images found on the following pages further fueled my desire to share the beauty that can be discovered through food. —Ari Bendersky

7 Things to know about photographing food

7 Things to know about photographing food by Olympus designer and professional photographer Ted Colegrove

I’ve always loved food and photography, so as a photographer, the marriage of the two has been very creatively satisfying. My style of food photography is close to a journalistic approach.
