The overall winner of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition has been awarded to Indian photographer Debdatta Chakraborty for the image Kebabiyana taken at a lively street food market in the Kashmir province of India. 

The vibrant, smokey photo was taken at Khayyam Chowk - an ordinary Indian street that by night is transformed into a mouth-watering hub for tasty food. Popular Kashmiri foods cooked on charcoal grills fill the streets with smoky aromas as people flock to the area to enjoy wazwan kebabs and other traditional foods. This year's winner shows a man, engulfed by smoke as he tends to what looks like chicken kebabs.
