“These are stunning images which shows an incredible depth of talent,” says Caroline Kenyon, Founder/Director of the Awards. “The world is in the grip of Covid19 and normal life, whatever that may be, has stopped for all of us. But photos such as this remind us of the old ways and cultural habits that bind us together.”

The Covid-19 lockdown did not defeat the celebrations. For the first time since the competition’s inception in 2011, the Awards evening was held online.

Winners were announced by legendary musician and cheesemaker, Alex James, in a live-streamed event on Tuesday 28 April 2020. It was watched by an audience across the globe, including celebrities from the food and photography world.

“The standard was exceptional,” says Phil Turnbull, CEO of APAL, parent company of Pink Lady, and headline sponsor of the Awards since 2011. “There were nearly 9000 entries from over 70 countries – this competition inspires across the world. It is a truly global coming together of talent.”

Chair of the Judges was the internationally-renowned food photographer David Loftus. This year his panel included Chris Dee, Director, Food & Home, Harrods; Per-Anders Jorgensen, Photographer and Founder, Fool Magazine; Josh Lustig, Picture Editor, Financial Times Weekend Magazine; Vitalie Taittinger, President, Champagne Taittinger.
