Our sponsorship is the 8th year that we have supported the prestigious award and we’re delighted

The range and quality of images this year has been extraordinary,” says Caroline Kenyon, Founder/Director of the Awards. “They tell moving, beautiful, informative, entertaining food and drink stories of every kind from around the world, a world still gripped by the pandemic, and show us how food is the thread that connects us all.

Live streamed event

The restrictions of the pandemic did not defeat the celebrations. The winners were announced by Fred Sirieix, in an exciting Awards ceremony that was  live streamed on the competition’s YouTube channel on Tuesday 27 April 2021. It was watched by an audience across the globe, including celebrities from the food and photography world.

“2021 marks a very special year for Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year. On the competition’s tenth anniversary, it is wonderful that a record number of entries were received,” says Phil Turnbull, CEO of APAL, owner of Pink Lady®, and headline sponsor of the Awards since 2011. “Almost 10,500 entries were submitted from over 70 countries around the world. As the reach of the competition grows further, it continues to be a truly global inspiration and celebration of the art of food photography.”

In true British style #nationalpicniweek hasn't quite delivered on the weather ☔ . But ANY kind of picnic counts so even an indoor carpet picnic works for us. Of course, no such event is complete without a quiche, so here's ours - with our hugely popular semi-dried tomatoes and olives. We love how versatile they both are. Happy picnic-ing (and come on please sun) 😎 ...

We first bought chorizo to the UK in 1990 and it's still so popular 31 years later! Whatever the weather this Spanish favourite is amazing in a range of dishes.

If you're in this weekend (and let's face it - most of us are) then why take a foodie trip with @marksandspencer's Italian night family dine in. Call us biased but we love the 'Nduja Meatballs with Pappardelle which is a dish in the deal. *whispers* It might be something to do with the fact that the 'nduja is one of our favourite products. And that we supply it through our foodservice team. But, despite our bias it really is a star in our range of Italian continental products and that's what we're about - delivering fresh and flavourful products. ...

🏆 Congrats to @smithfoto59 🏆 - winner of our Food For Sale category at last night's @foodphotoaward with his image Street Vendor. 📸 A gorgeous picture with beautiful tones. We can't but marvel at the ingenuity of the woman's stall made out of a pram - perfect for mobile sales.
We love this category as it's so close to our hearts (being in the business of selling food ourselves) and echoes our passion for delivering happiness through food.
