Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

IF yOu’vE HAd your ap­petite whet­ted by this year’s win­ning im­ages in the Pink Lady Food Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year awards, why not have a go your­self? The 2018 com­pe­ti­tion is now open for en­tries in a wide range of cat­e­gories which cover many as­pects of food pro­duc­tion, pre­sen­ta­tion and con­sump­tion. For 2018 there are some new cat­e­gories and new judges, in­clud­ing Fer­ran Adria, the iconic chef of the oft-voted world’s best restau­rant, El Bulli in Spain.

The Pink Lady Food Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion has had an il­lus­tri­ous and evolv­ing judg­ing panel since its first year. The range of skill and ex­per­tise is ex­ten­sive, from great pho­tog­ra­phers, cre­ative di­rec­tors, food re­tail­ers us­ing the finest pho­tog­ra­phy, pho­tog­ra­phy gallery own­ers, and chefs. Past judges have in­cluded An­to­nio Car­luc­cio, Martin Parr, Yo­tam Ot­tolenghi, Chris Bee­tles, Jay Rayner and Donna Hay. This year, for the first time, David Lof­tus – best known for his pho­tog­ra­phy for many of Jamie Oliver’s cook­ing books – will be the chair of the judges. Awards di­rec­tor, Caro­line Kenyon, said, “So here we are again, launch­ing for what is, amaz­ingly, our seventh year. For the first time ever, we have a Stu­dent Food Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year cat­e­gory, espe­cially for those in full or part-time pho­to­graphic study. Since the Awards be­gan we have been en­cour­ag­ing youth­ful food pho­tog­ra­phers, even the un­der-10s, but we re­alised that it was hard for even the most ac­com­plished stu­dents to com­pete against the very great­est pho­tog­ra­phers in the world with 20 or 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der their belt.”

The clos­ing date for en­tries in the 2018 Pink Lady Food Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion is 6 Fe­bru­ary 2018. The full list of cat­e­gories plus all the en­try re­quire­ments and pro­ce­dures can be found at www.pin­klady food­pho­tog­ra­pheroftheyear.com
