It’s back! The Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2014 is open for entries. What is great about this competition is how it celebrates the art of food photography worldwide and for its third year they anticipate even more entries! The category I’m most looking forward to seeing submissions for is ‘Food Bloggers’. This new category welcomes images that complement a blog and bring the written word to life. With food photography being used to illustrate recipes, now more so online, I hope this category will receive a range of excellent entries, making it very hard for the judges; which this year includes David Loftus and Donna Hay.
As still life paintings, black and white photographs and retro cookbooks can influence food photographs today, I’ve also been writing short excerpts on the history of food photography for the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year blog, which you can read here.
