This year's competition introduces three exciting new categories for entrants: Politics of Food, for photo-journalistic images that show the reality of issues relating to food anywhere in the world; Food Bloggers, for images that perfectly complement the blog and bring the written word to life; and the unearthed® Food in Film category, for short film, fact or fiction, about food.
Last year, more than 5,500 images were entered. They came from the far corners of the globe, from amateurs and professionals, from young and old photographers - all of whom were keen for their work to be seen by the star-studded panel. The top accolade went to an amateur photographer from Romania for a beautiful and endearing shot of her grandfather eating an apple.
Once again, a distinguished panel of judges will decide who deserves the title 2014 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year and the grand prize of £5,000. This year the panel includes Yotam Ottolenghi, acclaimed chef, cookery writer and restaurateur; David Loftus, Jamie Oliver's food photographer; Jay Rayner, award-winning journalist, broadcaster and food critic; Donna Hay, Australian food stylist and author of fourteen bestselling cook books; Julia Bradbury, Presenter, BBC1 Countryfile; and Pat Llewellyn, Founder and Managing Director, Optomen Television.
Shortlisted entries will be announced on Friday 28 March 2014 and the winners will be announced at an awards evening at the prestigious Mall Galleries, London on Wednesday 23 April 2014. All shortlisted images will be showcased to the public at a four-day exhibition at the Mall Galleries, and then toured across the country during 2014.

Pink Lady apples have a distinctive crisp texture and fizzy flavour – similar to champagne. It takes 200 days of tender care and, once ripe, each apple undergoes a rigorous quality control process to ensure that the high standard is kept – only the best apples can become a Pink Lady apple. Pink Lady apples are perfect culinary apples as they retain their texture and unique flavour and little, if any, additional sugar needs to be added.
Flapjacks are great for desserts, snacks and even lunchboxes, so make up a tray and watch them disappear!
