AWARDS AND SPORTS
For the year 2022, the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year was conferred to Mr.Debdatta Chakraborty, an Indian photographer.
His photograph was titled ‘Kebabiyana’, where the vendor is seen working at a smoke-filled food joint in Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir. The picture was shot at Srinagar's Khayyam Chowk. In the evening, it turns into a hub of activity as vendors light multiple charcoal ovens, and the aroma and smoke of wazwan kebabs from the grills transform this street into a foodie's paradise.
The ‘Kebabiyana’ picture was selected as it beautifully captured the billowing embrace of the smoke, the golden light, and the subject's expression as he prepares the food for sharing.
Thousands of people from more than 60 countries across the world entered this year's competition, and an overall winner was chosen for each category. The exhibition of the 2022 finalist images will be hosted at The Royal Photographic Society, in Bristol from 20th November until 12th December 2022.
In 2021, the award was conferred to the photographer Li Huaifeng, hailing from China.
