08 July 2015


Photographers are being urged to train their lenses on iconic images of British industry in EEF’s annual photography competition. Winners will receive a share of £5,000 of state-of-the-art Canon photography equipment.

Now in its sixth year, the competition aims to raise the profile of UK manufacturing by showcasing the industry’s creativity, diversity and heritage through inspiring photography.

There are three categories to enter: professional, amateur and young photographer (14-19 years old). The competition closes 30th September. Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of photography and industry experts with winners announced in December at a ceremony in the House of Commons in London.

The gallery of winning and shortlisted images will be showcased around the UK throughout 2016.
