Champagne Taittinger and photography meet at Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2014
Whether a christening or Christmas, a party or Passover, Holi or harvest supper, Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2014 seeks the very best shots for its exciting category, Food for Celebration, sponsored by Champagne Taittinger.
The name Taittinger has been synonymous with fine Champagne since 1931 when the family purchased Château de la Marquetterie - the family home. Taittinger remains one of the few premier houses in Champagne to be owned and actively managed by the family named on the label. Visit www.champagnetaittinger.co.uk
The stellar panel of judges for the awards is joined by Vitalie Taittinger, Marketing Director of Champagne Taittinger. She will be judging alongside Yotam Ottolenghi, Donna Hay and Angela Hartnett, among many others.
In 2013, the winning Food for Celebration shot was a top-down image of four pairs of hands making special rice cakes - 4 generations of one Japanese family working together.
