Our #PinkLadySnaps 2019/20 Instagram competition is now open!!

Our popular Instagram food-snapping competition, judged by award-winning food photographer David Loftus, has grown into a 'must-enter' competition on the online picture-sharing app. We're excited to announce that this year we have upgraded the monthly prizes, so each monthly winner will receive a beautiful print from the David Loftus print shop. Plus all monthly winners are automatically entered into the main prize, for the chance to win an invitation to the glitzy Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year awards in London next April.

This year we will also be introducing guest judges who will work alongside David to select their favourite pictures. Keep checking back for updates on who our first guest judge will be.
