Hot shots

As ever, there were some fine seafood images in this year’s Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition, the results of which were announced this week.

The competition has become the world’s leading celebration of the art of food photography. More than 7,000 images were entered from 60 countries this year alone, and were judged by a panel including David Loftus (Jamie Oliver’s photographer), food critic Jay Rayner and Ruth Rogers from The River Cafe.

We were particularly delighted to see that one of Caroline Trotter’s images came Highly Commended in the Politics of Food category, after we featured some of her work in a newsletter early last year, to coincide with her Fife Fishermen’s photography exhibition at Fife’s Scottish Fisheries Museum.

Seafood was a popular theme throughout the twenty different categories. Here’s a round-up of some of our favourites.
