It is now 2 decades that Pink Lady Food Photography awards is showing us a ritual for food thru some amazing photos from around the world.

Just like every year, thousands of participants send their best photos to compete in one or more of the 23 categories they have. For this 2022 edition, images from more than 60 different countries were submitted and the finalists will have an exhibition at The Royal Photographic Society, one of the world’s oldest photographic societies, in Bristol, England. This exhibit will run from November 20 to December 12, 2022 and the entry will be free for everyone to enjoy.

This year, a total of 38 winning images were selected. From Street Food, to the Harvest locations and to the table. The collection of photos is just mesmerizing.
