The Food Photographer of the Year 2016 winners have been announced. From flying apples to floating markets, cheese toasties to dripping honey and more, the entries for the 2016 prize focus on a diverse range of subjects, with photographers from across the world entering the annual competition.

2016's overall winner was British photographer Mark Benham, whose photograph - titled 'Flour Frenzy' - showed a baker having fun with flour while making bread. Benham was presented with the £5000 prize by Andy Macdonald, who heads up Pink Lady® in the UK, the headline sponsor of the awards.

"Over 7000 images and films were entered this year from 60 countries. 30,000 images have been submitted since the first Awards. As ever, it was a phenomenally high standard, making the judges' decision incredibly tough. We are delighted to present the trophy and prize to Mark for this wonderful photograph," said Macdonald. "He is only our second British winner in five years, and it reflects the truly international nature of the Awards."
