Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year (USA)


Kathryn Grandy, Chief Marketing Officer of Pink Lady America®

Pink Lady® apples have been an American favorite for 25 years. It was the first apple to earn its own registered trademark and grew to become the recognized apple brand in the world. Hand-picked by caring growers, Pink Lady® apples are always the first to blossom and the last to be harvested—each one soaking up 200 days of sunshine. It’s this generous growing time on the tree that gives Pink Lady® a recognizably gorgeous, rosy blush. Crisp and juicy, this legacy brand is known for a consistently delightful sweet flavor that consumers love. You can find Pink Lady® apples nearly year-round in grocery stores across the United States. Look for the Pink Lady® name and signature pink heart.

Pink Lady America® is proud to partner with the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year competition during our 25th celebration year. We believe this competition is an important spotlight for worldwide talent, and adding new categories enriches the experience.

This creates an exciting opportunity to honor photographers who creatively capture the robust and diverse food culture across North America. We look forward to celebrating the excellence that American food photographers bring to the table.
