We’re delighted to welcome Emma Boyns to the BBC Good Food team. Emma is the winner of the BBC Good Food Fresh Talent Award in partnership with Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year. Emma joins us for six months as our ‘house photographer’. As well as working alongside our cookery hub in the test kitchen to capture their recipe development, she’ll be making videos for our website, and photographing new products we want to let you know about. As part of her prize she will photograph a food feature for the magazine, so look out for that later this year.
BBC Good Food editor-in-chief Christine Hayes and chair of the judges Jay Rayner presented Emma with her award at the Champagne Taittinger reception held in London on April 25.
Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year is the world’s leading celebration of the art of food photography and film. Attracting international entries judged by a panel of leading food and drink experts over 8,400 images were submitted this year. Bangladesh-based Shoeb Faruquee was declared overall winner of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2017 and was presented with a cheque for £5000.
