Photo Contest 2016

Send us your photos of minerals and metals in your daily life. Minerals and metals are everywhere so be creative!

We are blessed with many perks of living in the Greater Sudbury area – not only do we have access to over 330 lakes and a 30 ft. Big Nickel, we are one of the world’s major mining communities. Everywhere you look around us you can find examples of new mining innovations, and minerals / metals that are part of our everyday life.

Submissions will be accepted starting Monday, April 11th through Friday, May 20th, 2016 (deadline 4:00pm). Email your entry to [email protected] (additional information is required, please see below) – all photos will then be posted on the Modern Mining & Technology Facebook page. Click through the images and ‘Like’ your favourites to help determine a winner. The photos with the most ‘likes’ win!
