Win £5000 of Canon photographic equipment by entering the Made in Britain Photography Awards

Professional and amateur photographers of all ages are invited to focus their cameras on British manufacturing to enter the EEF Made in Britain Photography Awards, which was launched on May 8th 2012.

Winners will share a prize fund of £5000 worth of photographic equipment from headline sponsor Canon. The awards are free to enter in three categories: professional, amateur and young people (14-19).

EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, is seeking images of modern manufacturing that capture British products, components or processes.

“There’s a boldness and beauty to British manufacturing that we’re looking to capture through stunning photography,” said Terry Scuoler, EEF Chief Executive of EEF.

The government’s Make it in Great Britain campaign is also backing the awards. Business Minister Mark Prisk said: “Manufacturing is a creative and innovative industry. EEF’s Manufacturing Photography Awards will help raise awareness of how interesting and dynamic the industry is, while tackling outdated perceptions. I wish all entrants the best of luck in the competition.”

Nikki Paine, Manufacturing Business Development Manager, Canon UK & Europe, said: “Canon’s sponsorship of the Made in Britain competition is part of our ongoing commitment to the manufacturing industry, and valued partnership with the EEF.

Other awards partners include, The Times newspaper, The Digital Asset Lab, ERA Foundation; The Guild of Photographers and The Manufacturer magazine.

The EEF photography awards, now in their third year, aim to create a new public image of 21st Century manufacturing industry by showing the industry’s ingenuity, creativity, technology and pride through inspiring photography.

MediaFiler Digital Asset Management software is used to manage the entire competition process; registration, entry submissions and viewing for the judges. Alastair McDavid of MediaFiler UK and The Digital Asset Lab said ” We are delighted that MediaFiler has proved to be the ideal solution to manage the competition yet again”.
