15 Dec National photo competition winners put industry in focus

UK manufacturing was celebrated at the House of Commons as the winners and runners-up of the 6th annual EEF/Lombard manufacturing photography competition were revealed.

The coveted Best Amateur Photographer award was won by Sheffield’s Mark Tomlinson for his dramatic shot of work being undertaken at Sheffield Forgemasters.

Now in its sixth year, the competition aims to raise the profile of British manufacturing by showcasing the industry’s creativity, diversity and heritage through inspiring photography.

Chief executive of EEF, Terry Scuoler commented: “Manufacturing offers countless opportunities for intriguing and eye-catching images.“The challenge is to capture the sector in a compelling shot that makes people think about modern manufacturing in a new way. This year’s winners have certainly achieved that and fully deserve to have won their awards.”
