Open to professional and non-professional, old and young, the Awards celebrate the very best in food photography and film from around the world.

The categories cover the full cultural range of the depiction of food in society – there is something for everyone. From styled food for magazines to images of families eating together in celebration of religious festivals, from depictions of the realities of food production to food growing in its natural setting.

Since 2011, over 70,000 images and films have been submitted from over 77 countries.

Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year was founded by Caroline Kenyon and her team at The Food Awards Company.

The idea for the Awards arose from two decades of experience commissioning photography and the wish to see this wonderful and vibrant sector of photography given the recognition it deserves.
