Numerous features showcasing images from the Awards are published in news, photography and food media across the world immediately after the Awards presentation and also over the following 12 months.

 

 

Exposure

Every image entered will be appreciated by some of the leading figures in the photography and food industries during the judging process and all of our amazing Shortlisted and Finalist entrants are featured in the gallery pages on our website.

Our Finalists will also have the opportunity to see their work displayed at the Royal Photographic Society, Bristol, in a free-to-enter, public exhibition in May/June 2023, giving your work high-profile exposure. This is intended to help publicise your creativity and also encourage and inspire others to develop their skills in food photography for the following year.

Press Opportunities

Regional press also love to feature stories of local photographers doing well in national awards and over the years we’ve seen lots of coverage in local media of our Shortlisted and Finalist Entrants. Winning awards presents the ideal opportunity for you to shout about your business and promote your work which attracts new customers and endorses what loyal customers already know.
