Winners of Young: 10 and Under | Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2021


Here are the captivating photographs submitted in the Young: 10 and Under category of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2021:

Founded in 2011 by Caroline Kenyon and her team at The Food Awards Company, the contest celebrates the best in food photography and film today. There are 30 unique categories that cover a range of depictions of food in society. The entries are then judged by experts—photographers, magazine editors, creative directors, film directors, food retailers, and chefs. This year, the esteemed panel of jurors included David Loftus, the Chair of Judges, Nicola Galloway, Jussi Brofeldt, and Francis Hodgson, among others. The title winner receives a cash prize of 5000 GBP.

First Winner: Evie Grimshaw, United Kingdom

Mussels with Steam: I chose to photograph the mussels at a closer distance as I wanted to highlight their repetitive shapes, the texture of the shells, and the steam that seemed to dance around them. The play of highlights and shadows also help to balance out the composition. For me, the dash of yellow and green shades help to enhance the frame as the viewer’s gaze is likely to follow them first.

Second Winner: William Huang, United States of America

Pacific Bresse Chicken: I was outside watching my chickens in the backyard while holding my camera. It was a cloudy day, and I noticed how they were slurping up worms, eating beetles, or digging around. Suddenly, one of the chickens looked up while consuming their food, dirt on its beak, and I quickly made this image.

Third Winner: Carla Smend, United Kingdom

Eggy Soldier Squad:
It is a photograph of breadstick soldiers sporting different hairstyles. They all wanted to immerse themselves into the warm yok. I shot this image in natural light. While composing, I decided to shoot from a top angle as it looks as if the soldiers are waiting in line.
