IRINOX Save the Food Award: for the contemporary image dedicated to food.

IRINOX is pleased to announce the first edition of the IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD Award within MIA Fair, the international art fair dedicated to photography in Italy, curated by Claudio Composti, co-founder and art director of mc2gallery and independent curator.

IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD will reward the pictures capable of narrating food in its multiple social, economic and cultural variables and implications.

With this award we confirm our commitment in the fight against food waste. IRINOX has always been attentive to environmental sustainability problems, with the aim of spreading the culture of cold-chain, to totally eliminate the waste of food, time, energy and thus able to block the properties of food intact and keep them in time.

The IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD Award intends to promote artists who, through the use of the image in all its forms, have tackled the theme of food. A theme that is very present in the history of humanity not only as a primary need, but the bearer of strong symbols and important anthropological-social implications. Conviviality in all its forms is the basis of human relationships. From cinema to theater, to literature, the theme of food has always interested artists who have told every side of it, interpreting its meaning which today, more than ever, becomes even stronger social and economic theme.

The finalist photos will be exhibited at CIBUS 2022 (International Food Exhibition) in Parma from 3 to 6 May 2022.
