The Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition also welcomes film submissions as well as still images, and the twenty-plus categories celebrate the range, diversity, creativeness, and breadth of food photography as a genre.
New for 2023, the competition has announced a new category for food photographers to enter, titled The Pink Lady Moments of Joy category, for images that show or represent the joy experienced through cooking, preparing, serving, or consuming food. The category winner for Moments of Joy will be awarded the prize of £1,500 ($1,800 / AU$2,675 approximately).
Other categories that you can enter in the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition also apply to the festive season, such as the Food for the Family category, as well as the Food at the Table, and Champagne Taittinger Food for Celebration categories.
There's also a category called On the Phone that accepts images captured using your smartphone, when times call for you to put the "proper" camera away at the dinner table. These categories are all perfect opportunities for capturing your festive food photographs, as family traditionally comes together.
Don't miss the deadline of February 5 to enter the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition 2023, and get your best food photographs entered for your chance to win a prestigious trophy as one of the several category winners, or £5,000 ($6,000 / AU$8,900 approximately) as the overall chosen winner.
