Shot from a Canon – International Food Photography Day 2012


The world’s first International Food Photography Day is to take place on Wednesday 14 November 2012 – a day to celebrate food photography in all its tasty and delicious glory.

We are encouraging everyone to celebrate the art of food photography by taking a snap of their mid morning apple, a sandwich from their lunchbox, a takeaway curry or supper at a friend’s house.

Everyone who takes part on Twitter using the hashtag #FoodPhotoDay2012 on Wednesday 14 November will automatically be entered into a draw to win the newly launched Canon EOS M.  Newly launched, the EOS M is Canon’s first compact system camera. The EOS M is the latest addition to Canon’s award-winning EOS range and has been designed for those who use photography to share their everyday passions – from photographing family and friends, to fashion and culture, food, music and art. Offering DSLR-quality imaging, creative features and Full HD movie creation in a compact and easy-to-use model, the EOS M is the perfect, take-anywhere partner.

We hope you will be inspired to snap your crackle and pop at the breakfast table, get zoomy on your halloumi at lunch or simply shoot a winner at dinner – wherever you are with food on Wednesday 14 November, take a picture and create your own food masterpiece.

Pictures on phones or cameras, whatever comes to hand, make this a day to remember, for an art form that has been around, astonishingly, for more than 150 years, recording and celebrating all aspects of the earth’s bounty.

International Food Photography Day is conceived by the organisers of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2013

If you register for Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2013 on 14 November 2012, you’ll be entered into a Prize Draw to win PhotoPlus X5 from Serif to edit, enhance, and organise your entire image collection.

Entry close on  31 January 2013. Shortlisted entries will be announced 20 March 2013 and winners will be announced at the Mall Galleries on 23 April 2013.

Be happy, get snappy.
