Posted on 12/4/2013 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

The 2014 “Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year” competition with a top prize of £5,000 has been announced. Professional and amateur photographers can submit their food images until January 31, 2014. The winner will be selected in London and announced on April 23, 2014 in a festive ceremony at the London’s “Mall Galleries.“

StockFood, the world’s number one food image agency, is one of the sponsors of the competition and CEO Pete A. Eising will be one of the judges. StockFood will also sponsor the competition category “Food off the Press” which honors current publication in books, magazines, newspapers and advertising.

The prestigious competition is dedicated to demanding food photographers and provides a worldwide platform for the most successful food photos.

This year’s competition includes three new categories in addition to 13 already-existing ones: “Food Bloggers,” “Food Politics” and the motion picture category “Food in Film,” sponsored by Unearthed®. “Food in Film” is designed to honor short food films that include documentary and fictional themes.  

“An Apple a Day,” sponsored by the headlining Pink Lady® is again among the categories. This famous apple brand awards the “most creative and beautiful apple photography.” The category for mobile phone photography is called “Food Sn-apping” and is awarded to the most original food snap shot, spontaneously taken with a mobile phone. For every image submitted in this category £2 will be contributed to the charity Action against Hunger.

Other categories include “Food in the Street,” “Food in the Field,” “Food and its Place” and “Food for Sale.”  One of the most popular categories, “Food for Celebration,” co-sponsored by Champagne producer Taittinger, will again be among this year’s topics. This category honors the importance of food in festive occasions around the world.

Last year, 5,500 photographers from more than 50 countries participated. Among them were a large number of impressive photographers whose work is in the StockFood collection.

Interested participants can find information about the 2014 competition at or on the main sponsor’s website
