Celebrating Apple Day with Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards
This October, Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year will celebrate #AppleDay with a 24-hour takeover of images from our very own Pink Lady® Apple a Day category.
On 21 October 2021, our 24-hour takeover will shine a light on previous winners and highly commended images from the category. On the hour, every hour, we will share one of these wonderful images from over the last ten years of Pink Lady® Apple a Day.
Across this decade, the category has delivered highly innovative and creative images of which our diverse panel of judges have appraised.
Ahead of Apple Day, we wanted to look at the category, and the kind of creative photography it encompasses. We then want to inspire creative ways to celebrate Apple Day with us this month.
We are looking for the most exciting, creative, inventive, beautiful images of Pink Lady® apples. They could be on a tree, on a plate, floating through the air, bobbing in water, in a child’s hand, however you see them. We want to see the simplest, most delicious of foods represented in the most inspiring way.
Winner of the 2021 Apple a Day category Natalia Bogubowicz’s beautiful image, ‘Apple in Cake’, depicts a freshly baked apple pie dusted with sugar, exquisitely photographed alongside a half-eaten slice of apple.
Why not try out a recipe with apples, and discover the ways in which apples can be photographed and styled throughout the process? Whether creatively, beautifully, or even distorted.

We asked Nicola Galloway, Ambassador and past judge for Pink Lady® Apple a Day category, to share with us her favourite Pink Lady® Apple a Day image.
One of New Zealand’s top foodies, Nicola is an award-winning Cookbook Author, Culinary Tutor & Food Photographer.
Nicola chose 2020 category winner, Diana Kowalczyk's 'Caramel Lady.'
“I love the natural lighting and how the apples are clearly the focus point but there is also more to the image to so create a story.”
