It's the home stretch for the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2020! There are just three days to go until entries close for the prestigious (and delicious) food photography competition, which closes on at midnight GMT on Sunday 09 February (that's this weekend!).

There's a category for everyone in 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, plus a VIP Awards evening attended by some of the food industry's most influential movers and shakers. Meanwhile the winning images will be featured in the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.

This exhibition will then go on tour throughout 2020, with the winner gaining international coverage and earning a place in history as one of the best photographers of the competition.

Categories such as Food for Celebration sponsored by Champagne Taittinger and the fiercely competitive Food Stylist Award inspired over 9,000 entries from 77 countries last year, so make sure to bring your A-game in your submissions! The head judge is David Loftus, internationally acclaimed food photographer who's shot for the likes of Jamie Oliver, Prue Leith and Rachel Khoo.

Previous winners include 2019's Jianhui Liao, whose overhead shot shows villagers from Handan in Shexian County of China wearing Qing Dynasty costumes gathering around a giant pot of noodles in a feast to celebrate the birth of goddess Nüwa.

Once again, the deadline for entering the competition is this Sunday, 09 February, at midnight GMT, so don't delay! All you need to do is complete a registration form, log into your account with your email address and password and upload your photos. Good luck!
