“Entry into the competition is free and we’re inviting photographers of all ages to submit iconic images of manufacturing heroes,” said EEF Chief Executive, Terry Scuoler. “It’s an open brief with plenty of creative potential and photographs can focus on any aspect of industry – whether that’s a product, heroic people, places, or anything relating to manufacturing processes.”
The competition is sponsored by Lombard and supported by Canon, The ERA Foundation, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, The Guild of Photographers, The Manufacturer magazine and The Digital Asset Lab. There are three entry categories of entry - these being professional, amateur and young people aged 14-19.
Winners will be announced at the prestigious EEF Future Manufacturing Awards in January 2012, and the gallery of winning and shortlisted images will be showcased throughout the year through high profile media exposure.
Prize vouchers for £5,000 worth of photography equipment, sponsored by Canon, will be shared among the winners. This includes the new range of digital still cameras and inkjet printers.
