Shortlist EGGcitement

The hotly-anticipated shortlist of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2018 was unveiled on Tuesday 27 March 2018.

Nearly 600 images were selected from 8000 entries from 60 countries across the world.

“To reach the shortlist is an enormous achievement,” says Caroline Kenyon, Founder/Director of the Awards. “The standard was exceptionally high and it was, at times, a painful process to choose between competing images.”

Make sure you head over to the shortlist page to see the full selection! In addition to hundreds of images of food in all forms there are wine images from our Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year category and 19 inspiring film shorts from our unearthed® Food Film Shorts supported by Foodism category.

Meanwhile, we thought we would celebrate our very own EGGcitement with a special selection of images from the shortlist.......whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover, or just the spring we hope you enjoy them.
