This year, EEFâ€™s annual Manufacturing Photography Competition is focusing on â€œcapturing the bright future of British manufacturing and championing the next generation of talent and technology in the sector.â€ It is open to young, amateur and professional photographers and will end on 30 September. The winners, which will get a share of the Â£5,000 prize fund and the chance to having their photos on display in the national and local media, will be announced at an awards event in London in November.
Five Leeds-based companies that have opened their door to participating photographers are Hopkins Catering Equipment, printing business Northern Flags, medical device manufacturer Brandon Medical, air handling equipment manufacturer Sovereign Air Movement, and electronics manufacturer Daletech Electronics.
EEFâ€™s membership engagement director, north, Richard Halstead, said: â€œThis competition shines a light on forward-looking and innovative companies. We are delighted that these businesses are opening their doors to local photographers, who can tell the story of UK manufacturing success by capturing images of technology, people and innovation in industry.â€
While EEF CEO Stephen Phipson added: â€œThe Manufacturing Photography competition celebrates the people and the products that help make manufacturing the beating heart of the UK economy. I wish all the photographers that enter the competition the best of luck and cannot wait to see the entries when they go on display at the awards event later in the year.â€
