EEA Photo Competition

Welcome to our inaugural photo competition. Here at the EEA we have been working away behind the scenes on a website refresh and you may have seen our new newsletter format adopted at the end of 2019. Our intent is to make our website and communications with our members and industry more member focused as well as providing a platform for our members and member companies the opportunity to show the industry their organisation and staff achievements.


Towards the end of 2019 the EEA did approach a number of member companies to source some images that the EEA could use for website imagery and promotional purposes and we received a good response, but it would be great to have some more options and contributions from individuals. We have a number of budding amateur photographers out there, and they will frequently be in a position to capture some stunning photos involving people, assets, diversity, technology to name a few. So we have decided to make a competition out of it and involve our members and industry.

What we are after

  • People - Diversity/Professional Community/Student and Apprentice Community/Events and Activities
  • Assets - What we work with
  • Emerging Technologies - Forward Thinking

We have put together an image library of the categories to show some examples of what to capture.
