The winning shot for the Food for Celebration category sponsored by Champagne Taittinger could be tucked up in your archive of Christmas, Divali, Chanukah and New Year party pictures!
Food for Celebration, a category of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year, seeks images of festive celebratory food from around the world, people eating it, people preparing it, however it may appear.
And what could be more celebratory than mother drinking champagne? Or the dog stealing a slice of turkey? Even granny tucking into Christmas pudding. So many opportunities for that winning photo.
Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year is the world’s leading celebration of food photography and film. The judges, chaired by Jay Rayner, include David Loftus, Jamie Oliver’s photographer, Liz Galbraith, Creative Director BBC Food, Paul Burrows, Editor Camera Magazine Australia and many other stars of the food and photography world. The winners’ exhibition is held at the world famous Mall Galleries, London in late April 2016.
“Last year being a finalist made an enormous difference to the work I am now doing,” says photographer Joan Ransley. While overall winner in 2015 David Griffen saw his website shoot up the Google rankings just days after his win was announced and says he has certainly come onto the radar of more art directors as a direct result of his triumph.
So make sure you put aside the time to sort through your archive and enter what could be the top shot. You have until Sunday 7 February 2016 to enter – who knows, you could go from Christmas party to the Champagne Taittinger awards party.
