About the EEF Photography Awards
It’s not often you get the chance to change the way people view manufacturing. By entering
the EEF Photography Awards you have the opportunity to show the world how vibrant and expansive British manufacturing is today - and win some fantastic prizes.
Almost 1,000 images have been entered into the previous 2010 and 2011 photography competitions, with finalists' images attracting national, regional and trade press covereage as well as being exhibited at BIS offices in Westminster and EEF offices across the country.
At EEF, we are working every day to help secure the future of UK manufacturing. A large part of the success of our industry is wrapped up in how people see what we do, and how they think about it.
So we want you to help us change the image of UK manufacturing.
We see the boldness and brilliance of manufacturers, our members, every day, and we want this to be recognised by the rest of the UK and beyond.
So we want the best images of the manufacturing supply chain in action. If you are part of the industry, they might be taken by keen amateur photographers in your own workforce, your apprentices or visiting students. We also want the best professional images you may have had taken by a professional photographer.
But you don’t have to be a part of the manufacturing sector to enter. Our photography awards are free to enter and open to everyone – professionals and amateurs of all ages.
Best photograph by a young photographer winner 2010, Melissa Garatt said:
“Young, bright and enthusiastic people are the spirit of modern UK manufacturing today. ‘Today’s Engineering, Tomorrow’s Future’ shows MBDA’s young apprentices in one of our test chambers, underneath a product that they help to manufacture. MBDA as a company embodies the spirit of manufacturing through its young people; it gives them the opportunity to get involved and hands on with all aspects of manufacturing, from designing, to building, to testing. By keeping this spirit in their young people UK manufacturing today can have a bright future tomorrow.”
