On April 23rd, I was a guest and finalist at the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Awards in London. It was such a lovely evening and a privilege to be among such talented people from so many countries. There were over 5,500 entrants from over 130 countries & some of the finalists had flown in to be there! The evening was hosted by Jay Rayner and the judging panel featured many highly esteemed individuals from the food world – Prue Leith, James Martin & Antonio Carluccio amongst others.
Well I’m delighted to report back that despite being up against some stiff competition I was awarded second and third place in two out of the three categories that I was shortlisted in. It’s a wonderful feeling to have such influential people like and vote for my photographs and I’m really thrilled.If you’d like to take a look yourself, all the finalists images are now available to view here
