Zomato Photo Challenge

November 25 - December 15

Abu Dhabi Culinary is partnering with Zomato for two awesome competitions.

The first sees diners who spend AED100 or more at a range of restaurants across the emirate go into a weekly raffle for the chance to win cameras, a Zomato voucher and a Chef’s Table dinner for two.

The second is an exciting campaign to discover Abu Dhabi’s best food photographer.


Abu Dhabi Culinary is looking for the capital’s most talented food photographers. Throughout the exciting second season, the foodie extravaganza has teamed up with Zomato for a creative competition which encourages all would-be snappers to submit their bold and beautiful images in three categories.


Capture the energy and excitement of food preparation, whether that’s the ingredients, the cooking methods or the people in the thick of it. Emotion and intrigue will surely win the day here.


The flick of a jus, the delicate placement of a finishing touch, or, at the end of the dining scale, the mess of colour in a hodge-podge dish of comfort food, food and art can be indistinguishable when  caught on camera.


From an intimate dinner to a raucous reunion with all your old friends, food is at the heart of some of the most magical personal moments. Big smiles and hungry eyes tell the story here. 


Shortlisted entries will be displayed in a pop-up gallery at a one-off event as part of an Abu Dhabi Culinary activation. The winning entry will also secure a short-term role with Action Global Communications to photograph exciting foodie initiatives taking place in Abu Dhabi in 2021. They will also win a state-of-the-art digital camera to take their talents to the next level.

A panel of local experts, including some of Abu Dhabi’s top chefs, will make the group of judges.


Submissions in one or all of the categories is open to anyone with a smart phone and e keen eye for the perfect photo. Entrants aren’t limited to a total of 10 entries during the campaign, but those who opt for multiple will not receive preferential treatment.

Simply upload the chosen images to social media, and be sure to tag #zomato_ADCS to be in with a chance of winning.
