Judges 2020

We regard our judges as at the heart of the prestige and integrity of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year.

We have been honoured over the years that so many great and illustrious international names have given their support, time and expertise, from legendary chef Ferran Adria to one of the world’s greatest living photographers, Martin Parr. 

Our judges range from photographers and magazine editors, to creative directors and film directors, to food retailers and chefs. All of them touch food and photography in their professional life and have many years, even decades, of experience. Each year, the panel is carefully crafted to maintain this incredible wealth of knowledge and experience.

Browse through our online Finalist and Commended galleries to enjoy the stunning, vibrant results this richness and diversity of expertise produces.

David Loftus is our Chair of Judges.
