This year I decided to enter the EEF‘s photography competition ‘Make it Britain’ and with images taken at Stephens Gaskets Limited in the West Midlands, I have got through to the shortlist. The final part of the competition is held at the House of Commons and I’ll be down there next month for the announcement of the winners and to have a drink or two.
Press Release from the EEF
Kidderminster photographer shortlisted for prestigious national award
Terry Livesey, a professional photographer from Kidderminster, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award in the 5th annual EEF/Lombard ‘Make it Britain’ photography competition.
Terry was shortlisted in the professional photographer category, sponsored by Canon, for his image of a shim being manufactured at Stephens Gaskets Limited in Birmingham. The photograph will now go on display at an awards ceremony in the House of Commons on Thursday 11th December where the winning photographer will be announced.
The competition aims to raise the profile of British manufacturing by showcasing the industry’s creativity, diversity and heritage through inspiring photography. It is part of EEF’s ongoing ‘Make it Britain’ campaign, which champions the vitality and vibrancy of the UK’s manufacturing and industrial base.
Terry says: “I was delighted to find out I’d been shortlisted for this award and knowing my work will be displayed in the House of Commons is the icing on the cake. Manufacturing offers endless opportunities for creative, dramatic and eye-catching images, but the tricky part is really capturing its essence and therefore the imagination of the judges.”
Barrie Street, Customer Marketing Manager at Canon UK, says: “This competition is about capturing the spirit of modern-day manufacturing and Terry has to be congratulated for taking a standout photograph that does exactly that. His image successfully captures the rich innovation and importance of industry in Britain today, and I very much look forward to seeing it displayed in Parliament.”
