All submitted photographs were of a very high standard and judging between them and deciding on winners was an exceptionally hard task.

Photographs were judged on a balance between photographic merit and relevance to the subject 'Mine Exploration' and their interpretation of that subject.

Thank you to all who took the time to enter, and sorry we couldn't award a prize to everyone.
