CLOSED - Snowden Photo Competition

Thank you to Carol D for letting me know about this competition.

Opened 1 January 2007
Closed 30 June 2007

The Snowden Group is a mining consultancy company and not surprisingly, this photographic competition is all about the mining industry. If you work in the industry, or just happen to be passing by a mine with your camera, it's worth taking a shot because first prize is $10,000.

All photos entered in the competition will be displayed online. You can vote for the people's choice photo from 16 July.

Last year's winners are stunning photographs. Have a look at: http://snowdengroup.com/PhotoComp.asp?CID=239&BID=383


All in Australian Dollars

First Prize $10,000
Second Prize $3,000

In addition, all winning entries will appear on the Snowden website and be displayed around the world at conference and exhibitions.
