2020 BenQ PhotoVue Competition - Passion for Food Photography

09-22-2020

It is true what chefs say that we “eat with our eyes first”. Food photography can be a feast for the eyes, as it contains all of the design elements that make a striking image: colour, texture, patterns, light, shape, form; they’re all there. The key ingredient is to capture the image in a way that makes the viewer want to dive in.

 

We’ve learnt a lot about food photography this year thanks to the amazing food photographers we worked with: Amalija Andersone, Pablo Gil and Solli Kanani. Now it’s your time to show off your food photography skills and win some tasty prizes. The rules are as simple as ever: 

 

  1. Take a food photo that will make everyone’s mouths water
  2. Download the frame we created for this competition from here
  3. Drop your food photo in the frame
  4. Add your country name to the frame
  5. Upload the final image on Instagram and add the following hashtags in the description: #aqcolorbybenq, #AQCOLOR, #benqfoodie
  6. Make sure you’re following us @aqcolor_by_benq_europe
