About the Winning Photograph

Cauldron Noodles is a magnificent shot, of a celebration of the goddess Nuwa, taken by Chinese photographer Jianhui Liao, has seized this year’s crown at Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2019, the world’s leading celebration of food photography and film.

Liao was presented with the £5000 prize by Andy Macdonald, who has headed up Pink Lady®in the UK, headline sponsor of the Awards. The announcement took place in front of an audience of four hundred guests at a glittering Champagne Taittinger reception packed with celebrities from the food and photography world, at the Mall Galleries, London on Tuesday 30 April 2019. 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.”
