Whether you shoot to order or raid your archive of food photos, there's not much time left to enter this year's Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year – entries close at the end of this week 10 February.

This renowned competition is the most prestigious in the industry, but it goes far beyond Instagram-able images of delicious dishes. Every year there's a diverse array of entries showing the production and enjoyment of food around the world from farm to fork – shot by amateurs and professionals alike.

Last year's overall winner was Bangladeshi photographer Noor Ahmed Gelal, whose shot titled 'Praying with Food' depicts the breaking of a day-long fast for a Hindi community
