The World’s Leading Photography Oscars are back!


After a stormingly successful year, the world’s leading awards for food photography and film, Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year, are now open for 2020 entries!

With more entries than ever before and from 77 countries in 2019, Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year shines a light on the very best photography and film shorts showing food in its every setting in cultures across the world. Stunning shots of cooking, harvesting, farming, eating, celebrating and sometimes just surviving – these pictures and films tell stories that move, delight, inform and entertain.

This year’s global judging panel, chaired by legendary food photographer David Loftus, includes new names such as Chris Dee, Food and Home Director, Harrods, Orlando Murrin, President, Guild of Food Writers, Anthea Loucas Bosha, CEO, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival and Joshua Lustig, Deputy Picture Editor, Financial Times Weekend Magazine.

“We are delighted to be headline sponsor again of these prestigious awards,” says Peter Durose, who heads up Pink Lady® in the UK. “Our brand is all about excellence and to act as a global patron of the arts in this way to such an important art form is very meaningful for us.”

Here is what our finalists have had to say...

Last year’s winner, Jianhui Liao from China, saw his winning shot in the press across the world, from BBC News Online to China Daily, The Guardian, The Times and The Telegraph. He also received a cheque for £5000 at the magnificent Champagne Taittinger Awards Evening at the Mall Galleries, London.

Our 2020 Champagne Taittinger Awards Reception will be hosted by none other than Alex James who brought pace, laughter and a rock’ n ’roll roar to the proceedings in 2019.
