After another successful year for the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards, the winning images were displayed at a renowned photography exhibition in the south of France for the second year running.

After a hugely successful awards ceremony at the prestigious Mall Gallery in central London, this spectacular feast for the eyes travelled across the UK and further afield, with some of the winning entries being shown at the Food Film Festival in New York, as well as being exhibited at the world renowned Les Rencontres d’Arles photography exhibition in Arles, from 2nd until 8th July. The display was hosted by the division of the festival which celebrates food photography from all over the world, gaining further exposure for this selection of talented photographers.

The exhibition was attended by special guest and celebrated Italian photographer, Maurizio Galimberti (famous for his use of Polaroid photographic mosaic).

This year, there were 8,000 images entered into the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards from 60 countries. One of the photographs showcased was by Bangladesh-based Noor Ahmed Gelal, who was declared overall winner of this year’s awards with his image ‘Praying with food.’ Gelal was presented with a cheque for £5,000 by Andy Macdonald, Managing Director of Coregeo®, the master licensor for Pink Lady® in the UK, at this year’s London-based award ceremony.
