Capture the beauty of the potato: ‘Potato photographer of the Year’ competition kicks off

While you’re stuck at home in this period of lockdown, why not flex your creative muscles and see how you can artistically capture the beauty of a potato? Whether you’re drawn to the simplicity of a King Edward, the gentle curves of a Yukon Gold or the marvels of the Maris Piper, here is a chance to show off your photography skills!

The Potato photographer of the Year competition is put on by the folks who run the website Photocrowd.com. The competition is available to anyone in the world, although all proceeds will go to help the Trussell Trust in the UK to provide food for people in need at this time of crisis.

The Trussell Trust aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK. It is doing this by supporting a nationwide network of food banks that provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and they campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

The creator of the winning image, as judged by a prestigious panel of professional judges that includes the legendary Martin Parr, will earn some great prizes and the hallowed title of ’Potato Photographer of the Year 2020′.

Examples of great potato photos on the Photocrowd site (some of which were entered for the competition) can be found here.

More information about the competition can be found on the Photocrowd website here. The deadline is 30 June.
