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 07 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, and winning entries will be displayed at the Royal Photographic Society's gallery in Bristol from 20 November to 12 December.

Categories such as Wedding Food Photographer sponsored by Champagne Taittinger and the fiercely competitive Food Stylist Award inspired nearly 9,000 entries from over 70 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. In 2020, the £5,000 top prize was shot by Bangladeshi photojournalist KM Asad, with an image shot in a Rohinga refugee camp.

Once again, the deadline for entering the competition is this Sunday, 07 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!
