One month until entries close for EEF’s Made in Britain Photography Awards 2013.
Now in its fourth year, the EEF Photography Awards aim to change the public image of manufacturing in the UK.
£5000 worth of Canon camera equipment is up for grabs across three categories which give young people, amateurs and professional photographer the opportunity to capture the essence of high value manufacturing in the UK.
The closing date for EEF’s Made in Britain Photography Awards 2013 is Monday September 30.
Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of photographic and industry experts in October and the shortlist will be announced in November.
The winners will be announced at a celebration event in Westminster in December. The gallery of winning and shortlisted images will be showcased around the UK throughout 2014.
Entry is free. Visit the EEF website www.eef.org.uk/photo, or call 020 7654 1501.
Entrants are encouraged to submit inspiring images of manufacturing people, processes and products in UK factories.
This year’s winner will be announced at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament in December.
The awards are free to enter and, for the first time this year EEF is running a parallel competition for images taken with mobile devices.
As the deadline for the 2013 awards approaches Terry Scuoler, chief executive of EEF, urged photography enthusiasts within industry, as well as in the general public, to take this opportunity to present their industry in a positive light and challenge outdated perception about the state of manufacturing in the UK.
“The technology and people involved in modern manufacturing are colourful, eclectic and exciting,” he said. “This is the chance for manufacturing companies to change the way people think about the industry and champion it as a leader of the economy by capturing its spirit.”
