Chesterfield photographer shortlisted for prestigious national award

Bryn Graves, a professional photographer from Staveley in Chesterfield, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award in the 5th annual EEF/Lombard ‘Make it Britain’ photography competition.

Bryn was shortlisted in the professional photographer category, sponsored by Canon, for his image of raw material enamelled copper rods ready for manufacturing into coils at AGW Electronics Ltd. 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.

Enamelled xopper rods ready for manufacturing

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.

Bryn 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 Bryn 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.”
