  • 2023 Engineering & Manufacturing Awards now free to enter
  • Entry deadline extended to 28th April
  • Awards party now takes place on Wednesday 13th September

Following feedback from industry, the inaugural Engineering & Manufacturing Awards – an exciting new celebration of UK engineering excellence – is now free to enter. In addition, this year’s awards party has been rescheduled for Wednesday 13th September, giving engineers and manufacturers even more time to put their teams, projects and people forward for this exciting new initiative.

Organised by leading events and publishing business MA Business, and powered by industry titles including The Engineer, Eureka, New Electronics, Machinery and Manufacturing Management magazines the EMAs were originally due to culminate in May.

Commenting on the changes MA Business MD Jon Benson said: “Whilst the new awards has already generated plenty of excitement, we want this to be as big and diverse a celebration of UK engineering and manufacturing as possible, and so - following feedback from a sector that’s facing historically high operating costs and some pretty challenging conditions - we have decided to make this competition free to enter and give potential finalists the best possible opportunity to shout about their achievements.”

With 15 categories to enter, covering all aspects of design, production and management, the awards were established to celebrate the people, teams, companies and projects at the forefront of UK engineering and to champion the role that engineers are playing in addressing some of society’s most pressing challenges.

“Engineering organisations and the people they employ are at the forefront of addressing some of the biggest challenges we face… these awards have been launched to celebrate the people, teams, companies and technologies at the forefront of this” said Jon Excell, Editor & Publisher of The Engineer magazine, one of the key media brands behind the new competition.
