It's the home stretch for the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2022! There are just a couple of weeks to go until entries close for the prestigious (and delicious) food photography competition, which closes on at midnight GMT on Sunday 06 February.
There's a category for everyone in the 11th edition of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year, whether you're a food stylist, a photojournalist, a student keen to polish up their skills, or a phone photographer who loves to take snaps of their breakfast (now's the time to get revenge on all your friends who whinge about you posting photos of all your meals!).
This year's leading food photography competition features a prize pool of £20,000 - with a top prize of £5,000 for the overall winner.
