Last night the prestigious wine photography awards category of the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2020 were announced.
The awards ceremony is an annual event that draws 400 food and wine industry people to the Mall Galleries where the photographs of winners and runners up are exhibited. In previous years Champagne Taittinger and Errazuriz ensure that all the glasses are charged as the awards are announced by celebrity guests.
This year, with the world in lockdown, the event went ahead via live stream on the web and was a great success. Although anticipated as a compromise on having a live event, it was actually great fun and people watching chimed in on the comments section.
Hopefully, the organisers will consider doing some sort of annual live event in parallel to any physical awards ceremonies once the pandemic has passed. The wine industry, along with many others, has been hugely successful in pivoting online with industry, educational and entertainment focussed content building in what is likely to be an irreversible trend.
Caroline Kenyon, Founder/Director of the Awards said, “The world is in the grip of Covid19 and normal life, whatever that may be, has stopped for all of us. But photos such as these remind us of the ways and cultural habits that mean so much to us and bind us together. We are all the same.”
