Congratulations to Bangladesh-based Shoeb Faruquee, who was declared overall winner of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2017 and was presented with a cheque for £5000 by Andy Macdonald, who heads up Pink Lady® in the UK (headline sponsor of the awards).
Shoeb had won the Food for Celebration category, which is sponsored by Champagne Taittinger, earlier in the evening and then went on to scoop the overall crown for his stunning image ‘Food for God’.
Winner of ‘Food for Celebration’ Category and Overall Winner – Shoeb Faruquee
“The competition was fiercer than ever,” says Macdonald, “there were over 8,400 images entered internationally, from over 60 countries, and the standard was phenomenal. Shoeb’s shot stood out from the rest in its category, however, for the way in which he made the subject matter – cooking for the breaking of a religious fast – both incredibly striking and atmospheric.”
As sponsors of the event, One Vision Imaging were proud to print and frame all of the finalists images ready for the final round of judging and the public exhibition at The Mall Galleries.
