foods of the world - photography competition

deptford, greenwich and the docklands play an important role in the diversity of food that is a central part of multicultural london. for centuries, nearby warehouses were full of ingredients from across the world, including rare foodstuffs introduced to the UK by migrant communities. today that legacy lives on in the diversity of food that can be found in the local area. fruit, vegetables, nuts, oils and spices from every continent are easy to find in deptford, and most came here by cargo ship.

how to enter

  • take a photo of an ingredient that you found somewhere in the local area. it could be a piece of fruit on a deptford market stall, a rare spice from a specialist local food shop, something you've grown yourself or any other food ingredient that interests you. you don't need a fancy camera - a smartphone will do!
  • upload your photo to any image hosting platform (facebook, instagram, flickr etc.) and then enter it via the form.
  • don't forget to fill in your contact details, so you can be contacted in case you win. your contact details won't be used for any other reason.

if, for any reason, you or someone you know is unable to enter through the entry form, please get in touch via the contact page and we'll do our best to make alternative arrangements.
