EEF Annual photography competition celebrates British manufacturing with £5,000 prize pot

Photographers of all experience levels are being asked to get snappy and have fun.

The EEF Photography Competition, now in its 8th year, is asking photographers to submit images that capture the essence of modern manufacturing.

From investing in the future through apprenticeships to proudly standing at the forefront of world leading research and technology, British manufacturing is the beating heart of the economy. The manufacturing photography competition showcases the ingenuity and creativity that takes place every day in the sector Terry Scuoler, CEO, EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation

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 showcase the creativity, diversity and heritage that defines modern British manufacturing.
