Aspiring young food photographers, get your entries in to Pink Lady competition!

Aged 17 or under? Love taking photos of food? Pink Lady (yes, those very same pink-skinned apples) have a competition for you! It runs between today and 31 Janaury 2014 and the panel of judges includes David Loftus (Jamie Oliver's food photographer) and Yotam Ottolenghi (one of my favourite chefs). Any photograph that features food is fair game: food in the field, food in preparation, or food on a plate and you need to be 17 or under on 31 January 2014 to be eligible. The entire category has been divided into three age ranges: 15 to 17, 11 to 14, and 10 and under.

If you win your category there's a trophy to mark your success and vouchers towards new camera kit to celebrate it. Your photo will also go on display at an exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London in spring next year along with the finalists from the adult categories.

There are some specific entry requirements for your images, for example they can't be posted on social media networks or have been entered in any other competitions, so please do read the conditions carefully. And whilst the adults might have to pay to enter their categories, there're no fees for the youth competitions. You can also be anywhere in the world to submit an entry. Last year's overall winner came from Romania.

You can have a look at last year's winning and commended photos to see what you're up against, but what do you have to lose? It sounds like a tasty competition to me!
