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
