Debdatta Chakraborty's photo "Kebabiyana", captured on a busy street at night in Srinagar, India, as vendors fired up charcoal ovens to prepare wazwan kebabs, is the overall winner of Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Award 2022 out of thousands of entries submitted from over 60 countries.

"In today's world, more than ever, we feel the need for comfort, for love," says awards Founder and Director Caroline Kenyon.

"There is so much to reassure us here - the beautifully captured billowing embrace of the smoke, the golden light, the subject's expression as he prepares the food for sharing.

"Sparks fly from the skewers, whose roasting we can almost smell. We imagine the warm, delicious aroma.

"This image, gentle but powerful, nourishes our soul."
