Host for the evening was the legendary musician and cheesemaker Alex James.
“The competition was fierce,” says Macdonald, “there were 9000 images entered from 77 countries – more entries and more countries than ever before - and the standard was phenomenal.”
Jianhui’s shot won the Food for Celebration category sponsored by Champagne Taittinger. “It stood out from the rest in its category, however, for the way in which he made the subject matter, a community feast, so beautiful and atmospheric.”
