Winners of National Manufacturing Photography awards revealed

Gifted photographers from across the country picked up honours at EEF’s National Manufacturing Photography Awards in Westminster.

The competition, which is sponsored by Liberty House Group and in partnership with the GREAT Campaign, is now in its 9th year and seeks creative images that capture the essence of modern manufacturing. Photographs can portray any stage of manufacturing – from design, process and technology in action through to the finished product – and can cover traditional or high-tech sectors. Winners were split into the categories of young, amateur and professional photographers.

Stephen Phipson, CEO at EEF, said: “From investing in the future by providing high-quality apprenticeships to exporting world class products across the globe, manufacturing is the perfect illustration of British ingenuity and creativity. All of the talented photographers shortlisted this year are to be congratulated on their incredible images that brilliantly reflect the innovation and dynamism of our sector.”

A spokesperson from Liberty added: “The UK manufacturing sector is diverse, delivering many world leading products, services and technologies. The EEF Manufacturing Photography competition provides a vast array of opportunities to capture images that celebrate our industry and inspire a new generation of engineering and manufacturing professionals among young people. Liberty via the GFG Foundation is already working towards the revival of engineering skills in the United Kingdom and we hope this competition would give young people a further opportunity to get involved and choose manufacturing as their future career.”

The manufacturing photography competition will run again in 2019 – details will be announced next year. For more information visit:
