PHOTO CONTEST | No Filter: Harnessing the transformational impacts of natural resources — as seen from the ground

By on January 17, 2018

Philippine Resources Journal is your best source of information and insights on the various resource industries of the Philippines.

We are the magazine that the key people in mining, petroleum, renewable energy and other resource industries rely upon for news and feature coverage of their businesses – including new and ongoing projects, exploration and development, company activities and profiles, technological advances, people on the move, conferences and expos, and other important updates.

This year, we invite those who work at or live around any extractive project in the Philippines, at any stage of development, to our first photography contest.

Winning photographs will appear on our 2018 covers!

The editors may develop a story to accompany any winning image that appears on the magazine’s cover.

Photographs should be appropriate for the cover of Philippine Resources Journal in both subject and quality. Entries should be of the Philippines, taken within the last 6 months, high-resolution, and free of any watermarks and overlays.
