The competition, just launching into its second year, celebrates all that is special and significant about food photography in our culture, recognising the art as never before. The awards honour the magnificent diversity, from eye-catching advertising hoardings to sumptuous editorial features, and tempting food packaging to daily blogs.
Following the success of the first year of the competition, this new category is being added and will join the likes of Food in the Street, Food in the Field, Food for Sale, Food Portraiture and the Philip Harben Award for Food in Action.
The Errázuriz Wine Photographer of the Year will be divided into three sub-categories - People, Product, Places. Entries will be judged by a panel of well-known wine trade members who have travelled to some of the most beautiful wineries around the world. The panel includes Yasia Williams, Deputy Creative Director of Mitchell Beazley, Joanna Simon, Wine & Food Editor of House & Garden, and Sarah Kemp, Publisher of Decanter Magazine.
The competition is open to professionals and amateurs alike, across the world. The winner of the Errázuriz Wine Photographer of the Year will receive £1,000 and wine from Viña Errázuriz for a year, while the overall winner will receive £5000.
All categories are now open for entries and the closing date is 31st January 2013. The winners will be announced on 23rd April 2013 at a VIP reception at the Mall Galleries, London SW1.
