#PinkLadySnaps 2022/22 – our Instagram competition will be back soon.

Our exciting Instagram competition, in association with the acclaimed Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards, will be back for another year this September. Last year we had thousands of entries showcasing the best of Instagram’s good-enough-to-eat ‘grams and this year we want to see more of your perfect pics!

Congratulations to this year's winner, Barbora Baretic for this stunning image of a sourdough loaf with edible flowers. Does bread get any prettier? Well done Barbora on this beautiful loaf and image. Thanks for sharing.

Heavenly Loaf

All entries are judged by David Loftus - one of the world’s leading photographers and also the Chair of Judges for Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year. David has worked with top chefs and foodies from across the globe including Rachel Khoo, Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie Oliver, Nathan Outlaw and April Bloomfield to name a few. For more than 20 years David has photographed over 100 books and his influential and internationally acclaimed work has led to Professional Photographer magazine naming him the 65th most influential photographer of all time.

Each month David will choose his favourite image to be crowned that month’s winner. Each of our monthly winners will be offered a donation of £40 which will be made by Pink Lady® to the World Food Programme charity in their name. They’ll also receive a shout-out from David Loftus on his Instagram account, where he’ll share the reasons he picked their perfect picture and why it caught his eye!

Each monthly winner will be automatically entered into the overall 2021/22 competition, which is also judged by David. The winner of the overall competition will win a DSLR camera up to the value of £800 – the perfect prize to progress your food photography and continue to create stunning snaps.

If you’re picked as this year’s winner, you’ll be in good company. Past winners have included Laura Field (@food_stylist_), Aimee Twigger (@twiggstudios) and Claudia from @thesugarologist.

How to enter the competition

Want to enter the competition? Just upload your winning foodie snap to Instagram, include the hashtag #PinkLadySnaps followed by the abbreviation of the current month you’re entering in e.g. Sep, Oct, then include the last two digits of the year e.g. 21 or 22. So, if you’re entering in the opening month of the competition, September, the hashtag would be #PinkLadySnapsSept21

All entries must also tag @pinkladyappleuk and @FoodPhotoAward to be officially entered into the monthly competition.

On the last day of each month, David Loftus will select his winning shot. These monthly winning images will then go forward to be considered as the overall winner of the #PinkLadySnaps21/22 competition to sit in good company with the illustrious shortlisted and winning images from the main Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year awards.
