Posted on 5/2/2014 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Winners have been chosen in the international photography competition Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2014. The first prize in the StockFood-sponsored category “Food off the Press” for the best recently-published food photograph went to Caroline Martin for her still life “Roasted Pigeons.” She is a French photographer living in Germany. Winning photos were chosen in 16 different categories. British photographer Tessa Bunney was named Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2014 and won the top prize with a cash award of £5,000.00 (approximately $8,000.00). Her photo “Noodle Making,” taken in Laos, convinced the international jury of 31 top experts.

The jury praised Tessa Bunney’s entry for its “wonderful composition and perfect unstaged, spontaneous quality.” Principle sponsor and organizer Pink Lady®, famous worldwide for the apple of the same name, has honored the best work of modern food photography for the third consecutive year. This year a total of approximately 6,000 professional and amateur photographers from more than 50 countries participated in the competition. This doubles the figure of entries in the first contest two years ago. The awards ceremony took place in The Mall Galleries in London.

More than 400 photographers from 20 countries entered the StockFood sponsored category Food off the Press. The entries were recently-published images that have appeared in books, magazines, newspapers or advertising. Caroline Martin’s photograph “Roasted Pigeons” won despite the stiff competition. She is represented in the StockFood collection with more than 250 photographs. Second and third place went to British photographer Guy Harrop for his “Herring Festival” and to Becky Lawton from Spain for her unusual “Delicias Bajo Cero.” Lawton is also represented in the StockFood collection with more than 450 photos. Co-sponsor StockFood has posted the winning photos on its website

Along with StockFood CEO Pete A. Eising, 30 other international experts from the fields of photography, media and gastronomy took their places on the jury. Among them is food photographer David Loftus (famous for his work on Jamie Oliver cookbooks), star-chef and author Yotam Ottolengh, India’s superstar chef Sanjeev Kapoor, food photographer and New York Times journalist Andrew Scrivani, along with Jane Suthering, chairman of the “Guild of Food Writers” and journalist and food critic Jay Rayner.
