In December 2016 we invited our project team members to submit photos to a contest that would help build a portfolio of images for our new website. We received close to 100 photos from six countries depicting various aspects of CIRDI’s work including community engagement and research, artisanal and small scale mining, peer-to-peer learning, training and knowledge exchange. We longlisted 33, shortlisted eight and after much deliberation by the judges, selected three photos as winners. We congratulate the winners and are grateful to all who took the time to submit their photos, many of which will be used to tell CIRDI’s story on the new website. (Watch for the launch later this spring).
Here are the three winning photographs with commentary from each of the photographers.
