Foodie film-makers everywhere, hoist your cameras on to your shoulders for an exciting new film short award. unearthed® Food in Film, a category of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2014 www.pinkladyfoodphotographeroftheyear.com is a wonderful opportunity to show off your work featuring food in any shape or form.
With a first prize of £1000, the category offers the chance for both documentary and non-documentary work to be submitted, no longer than two minutes. “We want to see really exciting, impactful, moving, funny short films about food – in any context,” says Caroline Kenyon, Director of the awards. “And we want to see films made by Under 18’s too, there are some outstanding young film-makers out there.”
Documentary can depict anything from the reality of food production and the environment, a family celebration feast, the story of one food shop or café, even the contents of a fridge. While Non-Documentary allows you tell stories, whether to sell a product (commercials are permitted) or simply to let your imagination run free.
Judges for the category include the legendary Pat Llewellyn, founder and Managing Director of TV Production company Optomen, who discovered Jamie Oliver and The Two Fat Ladies and also Helen Kranstauber, Creative Director, Food Film Festival, held annually in Holland.
“We are delighted to sponsor this new category,” says Simon Day, Founder of unearthed®, whose brainchild it was. “Our brand is all about discovery, so the exploration of food through film-making is the perfect partnership.”
Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year was launched in 2011 and has already established itself as the pre-eminent global celebration of the art of food imagery. The awards close to entry on 31 January 2014 and the winning work is displayed at the Mall Galleries, London in April 2014.
