PINK LADY FOOD PHO­TOG­RA­PHER OF THE YEAR 2017 – OPEN FOR EN­TRIES

Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

in­spired by some of the tasty images which won this year’s Pink Lady Food Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion, then why not have a go your­self? Af­ter all, noth­ing really goes to­gether quite as well as pho­tog­ra­phy and food. The 2017 com­pe­ti­tion is now open for en­tries and has some new judges and two new cat­e­gories.

“Who would have be­lieved,” ob­serves Andy Mac­don­ald, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Pink Lady Ap­ples UK, the head­line spon­sor, “…that, in just six years, we have seen the Awards de­velop into such an amaz­ing in­ter­na­tional event, with hugely qual­i­fied judges from the world of pho­tog­ra­phy and food, and from all cor­ners of the globe wish­ing to be in­volved, all of which demon­strates the im­por­tance of the Awards. Last year we re­ceived en­tries from more than 60 coun­tries and a stag­ger­ing 30,000 mouth-wa­ter­ing images have been en­tered into the com­pe­ti­tion since its in­cep­tion. These Awards are go­ing from strength to strength.”

Join­ing the judg­ing panel for 2017 is leg­endary chef, au­thor and restau­ra­teur Gary Rhodes OBE, Buzzfeed Global Photo Di­rec­tor Wa­jmah Yaqubi; Nik Pow­ell who is Di­rec­tor of Na­tional Film and Tele­vi­sion School and co-founder of Vir­gin Records, and Rein Skullerud who is head of the Photo Unit at the World Food Pro­gramme. Re­turn­ing for an­other help­ing are the chair of judges, Jay Rayner, ( The Guardian, Observer, BBC Ra­dio 4, Kitchen Cab­i­net, Masterchef and The One Show); David Lof­tus (who is Jamie Oliver’s pho­tog­ra­pher); Thomas Ger­w­ers, the Chair­man of TIPA; and Paul Bur­rows, Ed­i­tor of Cam­era mag­a­zine (who you might also have heard of be­fore).

The cat­e­gories – which have been devised to show­case the culture and pro­duc­tion of food in all its va­ri­ety – now in­clude ‘World Food Pro­gramme Food For Life’, for images de­pict­ing the hu­man­i­tar­ian as­pect of food; and ‘In­terCon­ti­nen­tal Lon­don Park Lane Food At The Ta­ble’, for the most de­li­cious images of food, ready-to-eat, in ho­tels, restau­rants, gas­trop­ubs and bars any­where in the world.
