The votes are in, and the winners of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2018 awards are have been announced. In a ceremony MCed by the legendary Prue Leith in Pall Mall, London, winners claimed their prestigious awards and cash prizes for their work in photography and film, all centred around food and drink. And winning one was no mean feat – there were more than 8,000 images and films from more than 60 countries entered in total, which were judged by food photographer David Loftus, Emily Luchetti of the James Beard Foundation, iconic chef Ferran Adrià and more.
While there were amazing entries (and winners) across the categories, we were particularly interested in the Food in Film category, for which we a proud media partner. The winner, For the Love of Food, was a stunningly shot and powerful mini-documentary about fishing and cooking on the Isle of Skye. Created by Rob Evans, Matt Roberts and Chris Roberts, it portrays fishermen, gardeners, farmers and cooks and showcases the hallowed fish, seafood and produce of the Scottish isle – and the care and attention given to it by the people who create it.

Elsewhere, the grand prize was awarded to Praying with Food by Bangladeshi photographer Noor Ahmed Gelal, an arresting aerial shot of Hindu worshippers breaking their fast at a Bangladeshi temple.
