Food through a lens for £5k prize

MAKING food look good and capturing that look in a photograph is a true art.

Now a Rasen area PR company is encouraging local photographers to enter a newly launched competition.

Kingerby based Kenyon Communications is behind a unique set of global photography awards - Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2012.

“The idea came to us earlier in the year,” said director Caroline Kenyon.

“We have commissioned a great deal of food photography over the years and wanted to enter some of it into awards but couldn’t find one. So we decided to launch our own!”

And with a prize of £5,000 for the overall winner the awards are already proving popular.

There are nine categories in all, ranging from Food in the Street, Food in the Field, Food for Sale, Food Portraiture and, of course, a Young category.

The entries, open to professionals and amateurs alike, will be judged in March and the winning images will be displayed at London’s world-renowned Mall Galleries in April 2012.
