Annual photography competition celebrates British manufacturing

Subscribe to About EEF media release feeds


Budding and experienced photographers are being urged to train their lenses on British manufacturing for the annual EEF manufacturing photography competition.

The competition, now in its 7th year, is asking photographers to submit images that capture the essence of modern manufacturing. Photographs can portray any stage of manufacturing - from design, process and technology in action through to the finished product - and can cover traditional or high-tech sectors.

The competition is designed to raise the profile of UK manufacturing by showcasing the industry’s creativity, diversity and heritage through inspiring photography. To give people the best shot at winning, companies are also being encouraged to open their doors to photographers in their local area to demonstrate what makes manufacturing so great.

There are three categories to enter: professional, amateur and young photographer (under 20 at 30th September 2016). Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of photography and industry experts, with winners announced in December.

Terry Scuoler, Chief Executive of EEF, says: “From investing in the future by providing high-quality apprenticeships to exporting world class products across the globe, manufacturing is the beating heart of British ingenuity and creativity.  This competition is the perfect showcase for the hard work and innovation taking place each and every day in our sector.”

The competition closes on Friday 30th September. For more information and to enter the competition, visit
