All shortlisted photographs will now go on display at an awards ceremony in the House of Commons where the winning photographers will be announced.


The competition, through the theme Made by Britain, Loved by the World, aims to raise the profile of modern day UK manufacturing by showcasing the industry’s creativity, diversity and heritage through inspiring photography. This year’s shortlisted photographs portray the various stages of manufacturing - from design, process and technology in action through to the finished product - and cover both traditional and high-tech sectors.


Terry Scuoler, CEO of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, commented “This competition is all about capturing how innovative and exciting modern manufacturing is. I can’t wait to see this incredible image, along with all the other shortlisted images, on display in the House of Commons later in December.”
