Food Photography Contest
Brought to you by the Food Photographers and Stylists section of IACP.
This contest is organized by the Food Photographers and Stylists section of the IACP. Its purpose is to showcase the incredible talent and skill among IACP members, and to promote professional food photography & styling. You must be a member to enter.
The deadline is February 15, 2015, and the entry fee is only $12 per image. Click through the links above for details on all aspects of the contest.
The contest is based around a theme, which this year is “Food in Action.” This could mean food that tumbles, flies, bubbles or pours. It could also mean political action, where the artist addresses food policy or hunger. It could even mean food going from farm to market, fork to mouth. Contest themes are intended to be open to the artist’s interpretation. The most important issue is that you show your best work from the past 15 months.
Awards in two categories will be presented:
2015 IACP Food Photograph of the Year
2015 Peoples Choice in Food Photography
Entries will be judged by a panel of industry professionals chosen by the FPS section Chair. Images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, artistic merit and overall impact as well as how succesfully they depict the contest theme.
Ten finalists will be chosen from all submitted entries and displayed at the annual conference. (Finalist will be contacted, and asked to submit a high res file suitable for printing, on or before March 1, 2014). The 2015 IACP Food Photograph of the Year will be chosen by the judges and announced at the conference. The People’ Choice Award will be chosen by IACP members by on-line survey from the 10 finalists. Members who are present, and those not present, may vote for the people’s choice. One vote per member.
