Picture your hero

Posted on 6 Sep 2011 by The Manufacturer

Kathy Riley, awards director at EEF, explains how to win up to £5,000 worth of latest Canon photography products and get high profile company exposure to boot.

“We’re looking for entries into the EEF Photography Competition which reflect this year’s theme, ‘the heroes of modern UK manufacturing’. This could be anything from still images of components or products, individual people or teams, or the places and processes which you feel illustrate the evolving landscape of manufacturing in the 21st century. ”

What are the judges looking for?
“The judges will be looking for strong images that raise questions in people’s minds,” adds Kathy. “Does the image provoke surprise or admiration? Will people look at it and say: “I didn’t realise that was part of our UK manufacturing base”? Will it make people wish they had taken the picture and captured this message?

“Because we want to find a new set of iconic images which portray the boldness and creativity of UK manufacturing, the quality of its output – its people, products and processes, we want your images to reflect a new and contemporary identity which truly showcases a new and modern UK manufacturing industry.”

What could I win?

• Win up to £5000 worth of photography equipment from our partner Canon

• You and your business will get high-profile media exposure – a showcase of the best images will be used in our print media and public relations activity

• By entering your own images into our competition you will be helping to re-define the public perception of manufacturing
