In 2014, Snowden is once again “Celebrating the Mining Industry” with their annual photography competition, providing unique opportunities for non-professional photographers around the world.
Mining can often have a bad reputation in society, so with this competition, the organizers would like to showcase the many great things that this industry has to offer.
The 2014 Snowden Photography Competition offers one prize of A$10,000 for the overall winner and five (5) category prizes of A$1,000 each.
All non-professional photographers around the world, older than 18, may enter up to three photographs and compete in the following categories:
- People in Mining
- Black and White
- Landscapes of Mining
- Equipment and Machinery in Mining
- Reasons to Celebrate the Mining Industry (New in 2014)
All photos must be mining industry related and will be disqualified if they’re not. Photos may be cropped and normal fine-tuning is allowed.
The competition consists of three rounds of evaluation.
