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.”

Editors’ favorite submissions to the photo contest.

Nacreous Clouds
Photo and caption by Bartłomiej Jurecki
Nacreous clouds or polar stratospheric clouds. On the last day of the year those clouds could be seen on the Lofoten islands in northern Norway. These clouds are characterized by a strong iridescence. Clouds are formed with a small amount of water vapor that leaked to the upper parts of the atmosphere. They scatter the light differently, that is why the color of the clouds reminds rainbow. Those clouds occur very rarely.

The fire-breathing Giant

There is a rumor that you can watch forever on two things: fire and water, but when it comes to exploding lava fountains, – it is sempiternity multiplied to infinity.

Feeding On Salt-The Zipper Of The Earth

Lake Retba, or Lac Rose (Pink Lake in english), the beautiful finishing point of the worldwide known Paris-Dakar Rally (until 2009 when they moved to South America). Located north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, 30km north-east from the capital city of Dakar, the lake took his name for its pink/red waters caused by Dunaliella Salina algae and is known for its high salt content, up to 40% in some areas.
