A PHOTOGRAPHER from the North East has won a national competition celebrating British manufacturing.
Mike Smith’s Precision was the winning entry for the Professional Photographer category of the Made in Britain photography awards, the nationwide competition run by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation.
The shot down self- contained white metal PTFE- faced hydrodynamic bearings, made by Rolls Royce Michell in Newcastle, drew viewers in and brought together a kaleidoscope of colours and a human element.
Mike was presented with his share of £5,000 worth of Canon photography equipment by sponsors Canon and Lombard at an awards ceremony at the House of Commons.
Andy Tuscher, regional director for the North East at EEF, said: “We are delighted to see that the quantity and quality of the EEF Photography Awards has grown year on year.
“Manufacturing is exciting and constantly evolving, and we are proud of all of our entrants who have helped us redefine the public perception of manufacturing with their eclectic range of images.”
