Ray Spence - 2020 Winner

We are thrilled to announce the winner of the second edition of the world’s only international potato photography competition

Potato Photographer of the Year 2021

Overall winner

William Ropp with 'Fish & Chips'

“There's something extremely wonderful and weird about this work. The amalgamation of vegetables and animals creates a strange portrait of the everyday food we consume. The fact that the image was taken on a polaroid camera with just a flashlight is of great credit to the photographer's skill.” Amy D’Agorne

Second place

Clair Robins with 'Precious Potatoes'

"The wonderfully simple and delicate approach to this image has been beautifully handled" Ben Brain

Third place

John Glover with 'Hands Holding New Potatoes'

“I love the simplicity of this as the gardener proudly shows off their homegrown spuds” Martin Parr

The competition was inspired in part by the photo of a potato (Potato #345 (2010)), taken by acclaimed photographer Kevin Abosch that sold for $1million in 2016. It is a splendid photograph and just goes to show there’s an appetite for potato-based photo art.

All money raised from the entries will be donated to the The Trussell Trust who provide much-needed food for people locked in poverty.
