IET Photo Competition 2019
We're now launching the IET's annual photography competition for 2019 in a bid to challenge the stereotypical image of hard hats and dirty overalls often associated with engineering and instead showcase modern engineering.
Open to any photograph of an engineering-related subject that captures the creative, exciting and modern face of engineering and engineers today, the competition is split into two age groups – under 16 and 17 and over – with five categories to enter. 
  • Design & Production
  • Digital
  • Environment & Energy
  • Structures
  • Transport

Judges include Gadget Show host Georgie Barrat, Editor of Amateur Photographer magazine Nigel Atherton, E&T magazine Picture Editor Gillian Abbott and Vice-Chair of the IET Young Professionals Communities Committee (YPCC). The judges will look at every entry and award cash prizes to five adult category winners and five junior category winners. An overall winner for the adult entries and an overall winner for the junior entries will be selected for an extra cash prize. The best photo taken on a smart phone across all categories will also win a cash prize. Winners’ photographs will appear in an exhibit in Savoy Place and be published in leading photography magazine, Amateur Photographer.

IET YPCC Vice-Chair Dr Imran Ansari, said: “This is the third year that the IET has run this competition and we’ve had some really fantastic images entered over the past two years, showing just how cool and varied engineering really is. We want to build on this bank of images and banish the perception that engineers just fix or mend things.

By making this call for creative and stand out images, we hope that we can help to highlight the modern, exciting and creative nature of an engineer’s work and demonstrate that their work is all around us and central to our everyday lives

The deadline for entries is 30 August 2019. To find out more about the competition, please visit
