The ap­pli­ance of sci­ence

We prove that en­gi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy pic­tures can be cre­ative, with this win­ning se­lec­tion from the IET’s Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year com­pe­ti­tion

The In­sti­tute of En­gi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy (IET) holds an an­nual pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion, sup­ported by

Am­a­teur Pho­tog­ra­pher. At its heart, the com­pe­ti­tion aims to chal­lenge ex­ist­ing mis­con­cep­tions about en­gi­neer­ing – of it be­ing all about hard hats, high-vis bibs and oily boiler suits – and en­cour­age more young peo­ple, and es­pe­cially women, to con­sider a sci­en­tific ca­reer.

Launched ear­lier in the year the con­test was open to any pho­to­graph of an en­gi­neer­ing-re­lated sub­ject that cap­tures the dy­namic, cre­ative and pro­gres­sive face of en­gi­neer­ing and engi­neers to­day. A panel of judges ( be­low left), fronted by

The Gad­get Show’s Ge­orgie Bar­rat and in­clud­ing AP Ed­i­tor Nigel Ather­ton, as­sessed more than 400 pho­tos en­tered into 11 cat­e­gories. Here are the win­ning en­tries, along with a se­lec­tion of our favourite com­mended ones.
