Categories

All Food Photo Affair contest categories are open for interpretation. We’re looking for your creativity. For example, a “plate” could be fine china, or it could be a banana leaf, a slab of wood, etc. For our “Spicy” category, you could present a drink, a dessert, a savory dish—it’s up to you. And if you have a story that goes along with your image—all the better!

Photo Submissions

The Food Photo Affair exhibition features 15 themed categories. Participants are not required to attend the exhibition in order to enter or collect an award. Photographs entered must not contain obscene, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable content. Entries deemed inappropriate will be disqualified.
