K M Asad has been named Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2020 for her image of children queuing for food at a vast Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

More than one million people live in the refugee camp, recently been placed in lockdown amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

“This moving image really speaks to our times,” awards founder and director Caroline Kenyon says.

“The world is in the grip of Covid-19 – and normal life, whatever that may be, has stopped for all of us.

“These Rohingya refugee children remind us of the fragility of life, that our need for food for survival connects us all around the world – we are all the same.”

After judges sifted through 9,000 entries from more than 70 countries the winners, were announced online via a livestream event.
