Second place – A Potato: ‘This looks like an alien lifeform, photographed on the surface on a barren planet by a Nasa robot.’ Nigel Atherton. Photograph: David White


Untitled: ‘This carefully arranged tableau is a work that stayed most in my mind when I went back and forth through the excellent contributions to the competition. The photographer has creatively used what looks like available light in an empty kitchen, and the image also reflects effectively the claustrophobic side of the lockdown.’ Paul Hill.

Potato Slug: ‘I like the fact that this spud looks like a cross between a seal and a unicorn.’ Martin Parr. Photograph: Laure Gibault


Planting Jersey Royals: ‘A very well arranged image showing potato pickers. Looks like back-breaking work.’ Martin Parr. Photograph: Peter Hubert


Frites in Bruges: ‘How reassuring to see a helping of chips and mayonnaise.’ Martin Parr. Photograph: William Richardson


Third place – Tight Market Specifications: ‘This image looks at the politics of the potato from two angles – its indigenous origins and the current domination of agriculture by a single company – and cleverly combines them is a thoughtfully conceived and well-executed composite image.’ Nigel Atherton.
