The EEF has announced their annual photography competition which looks to celebrate modern manufacturing through art. The competition is now open for people to submit their entries, with the competition expected to close on 30th September.
The photography competition that is run by EEF is now in its eighth year. This yearâs brief is for photographers to submit modern manufacturing. This brief can cover any part of the manufacturing process which can include the design stage, the actual manufacturing process and the technology that is required as part of the manufacturing industry. Photos are accepted at any stage from concept to the finished project and the brief allows for both traditional processes as well as the use of cutting edge technology.
The intention of the photography competition is to recognise and showcase the creativity involved in the manufacturing industry as well as the diversity and heritage that all forms a part of the manufacturing industry in Britain. In order to give companies the best chance as part of the competition it has been suggested by the EEF to use local photographers who will be able to reflect the greatness of the British manufacturing industry in the best light.
As part of the competition, there will be three different categories that can be entered. These categories include professional, amateur and young photographer groups. It is thought that there is around £5,000 worth of prizes up for grabs as part of the competition. A good incentive for companies to get involved. As part of the process, the entries will be shortlisted by a panel that will be made up of photography and industry experts. The winners of each category will be announced after the judging process at some point in December 2017.
British manufacturing is an industry that has been improving; through investing in more apprenticeships to being part of the cutting edge development of industry technology. It is thought that the competition highlights and reflects the innovation and hard work that takes place every day as part of the manufacturing industry.
