We are sponsors of the famous International Culinary Photo Festival (FIPC) launched by Jean-Pierre Stephan a few years ago. Due to these particularly challenging times, we haven’t been able to get the jury together around a table to award the prizes and trophies (that are ready) and to show you the wonderful images. So it’s action time! Here’s the list of photographers who submitted pictures for this mysterious 11th edition on the theme of “the South” and a few of their images. The others will be published either on the FIPC’s Instagram and Facebook feeds, or in the catalogue, or hopefully soon in real life. But in the meantime, feast your eyes and taste buds!

Soon, we’ll know who won the trophies designed by Sylvie Amar & Partners and made by porcelain-maker Raynaud. The prizes to be awarded include the Gastronomic Photography Grand Prize, the Product Ambassador/Euro-Toques Grand Prize, The Special Award from the Institut du Monde Arabe, the Special award from France’s Press Club and the traditional Public Vote. This year’s Chair is Mr Gérald Passedat, the perfect ambassador from the South (a 3-star chef at Marseille’s ‘le Petit Nice’ restaurant).
A big thank you too to all the competition’s other sponsors: Maison Sales, Picto, Raynaud, le Salon de la photo, L’espace des Fabriques, Signatures and us …Sylvie Amar & Partners. (Trophee design by Sylvie Amar & Partners)
