What is #facesofmining?
Well firstly, mining works best with humans! It can be tough, hot, cold, sweaty, complex – but humans endure that and make it work! When Mining People International (MPi) kicked off our Instagram account we wanted it to be the place where the humans of mining come and share their photos using the #facesofmining hashtag. We asked for mining images with lots of people in them so that we can share the human side of mining with the rest of world. The idea took off and it’s up and running in a big way, so come on mining humans, start photographing and join in the fun.
We’ll be mentioning photo of the week and photo of the month at miningpeople.com.au and issuing prizes for the best as chosen by the MPi #facesofmining team. We will acknowledge YOU as the source. Become famous and be seen by 20,000 visitors to miningpeople.com.au
The mining industry’s very own Archibald Prize
The Archibald Prize is a long running famous Australian portrait painting prize and we think it is time the mining industry had its own photographic version. So the monthly winners of #facesofmining will go into the running for the annual grand prize awarded to a winner decided by a panel chaired by a professional photographer.
