After an incredibly successful debut year, the international Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2013 is now open for entries! (Don’t you just hate the way press releases and teenagers use too many exclamation marks, or is it just me?)
This year’s award also introduces four exciting new categories for entrants. The hotly anticipated Food off the Press category for previously published work in books and magazines will open up the competition to a wider range of entries. Similarly, the Food Snapping category is for images of food taken on mobile phones, and is in support of Action Against Hunger.
The third and fourth categories are Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year, for images of wine, producers and all things related to the subject and Food for Celebration, images of festive, celebratory food from across the world.
Full details of this competition to find the best food photography can be found here

All the winners images are available to buy on the website as is all the information about the 2013 competition
