I did not make it to the final listing. However, being shortlisted in the 400 final entries out of nearly 6000 was quite unbelievable!
The photo selected (above, from a blog post about the apple and peanut butter tart) can now be viewed on an online gallery on the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year website. Scroll down to the Food Bloggers section and you will find me there with some other really beautiful images.
All I can say is that the past few weeks (months even!) have been filled with happy days and very busy times with work doing food photography. So, news of this kind are just la cerise sur le gâteau (the icing on the cake). It just shows me that with perseverance doing a job I love come some really good results.
Here is to more happy times (and I can say already some great ones are on their way)!
