EEF Manufacturing Photography Competition opens for entries

19 June 2018


Closes: 30th September.

Photographers of all experience levels are being asked to capture the dynamism of modern British industry as the 9th annual EEF Manufacturing Photography Competition opens for entries.

This year the competition is asking photographers to capture the bright future of British Manufacturing and champion the next generation of talent and technology in the sector. Photographs can portray any stage of manufacturing - from design, process and technology in action through to the finished product – and feature individuals at work.

There are four categories for photographers to enter: Next Generation, Future Technology, Manufacturing Process and Manufacturing Product. The competition is free to enter and open to young, amateur and professional photographers alike.

Each category will have one winner from each skill level:

  • Best photograph by a Professional photographer 
  • Best photograph by an Amateur photographer 
  • Best photograph by a Young photographer (under 20 years old on 30 September 2018).

Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of photography and industry experts, with winners announced at an awards event in London in November. There is a £5000 prize fund from which winning photographers will get a share.

To give entrants the best shot at winning, companies are being urged to open their doors to local photographers. For information on how to do this, visit the EEF website.
