Submissions are now open for the 2018 Queensland Mining Awards, with entries welcomed across seven categories ranging from time and cost saving to engagement, collaboration and safety.
Businesses of all sizes are encouraged to enter, particularly with the introduction of the new collaboration category which is also open to mining companies. The process has been simplified with a new online submissions process and an exciting new partnership with the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) who are co-hosting the event with Bowen Basin.
QME has been a partner of the awards since their inception and will once again sponsor the New Product Launch category. While this is the third time the awards have been held in line with QME, this year brings the introduction of a new finalist showcase at QME which will feature the finalists providing additional opportunities for those companies who have excelled in each category.
Award submissions will be judged by a panel of independent industry experts, to be announced in early February. One exceptional entry will then be chosen to be named the 2018 Queensland Mining Contractor of the Year, for outstanding performance across all categories.
Eligible projects must have been completed in a Queensland-based mining operation between April 2016 and December 2017. Each individual submission will attract a fee of $400 + GST unless you are a QME exhibitor.
