Over 460 images of a variety of manufacturing activities were entered, an impressive haul in its first year, and have been shortlisted to 41 photos. The competition, in partnership with Canon, is split into three categories, Best Photograph by an amateur photographer, Best photo by a professional photographer and Best photo by a young person (14-19).

There are 17 entries in each of the first two main categories, and nine in the young person category. The competition is being judges by Simon Young, a professional photographer and member of the Guild of Photographers, Alastair David, managing director of The Digital Asset Lab, Frankie Jim from Canon Consumer Imaging and Nick Hussey, chairman of SayOne Media, publishers of The Manufacturer magazine.

“The standard of photographs we’ve received has been very high, we’re extremely impressed with the quality for the launch year,” said Kathy Riley, EEF’s marketing director. “The judges think the shortlisted entries show both technical photographic ability as well as portraying manufacturing in a modern and positive light.”

The competition judging will take place today, Monday January 10th and the winners will be announced by EEF at the end of January and in the February issue of The Manufacturer.
