Submissions for the Queensland Mining Contractor Awards Open Today!
Submissions for the Queensland Mining Contractor Awards open today, with entries welcomed across innovation, cost and time saving, product development, engagement and equal opportunity categories.
With just over six months to go until the winners are announced, BBMC Director Jodie Currie says she’s looking forward to discovering some hidden treasures.
“With the high calibre of submissions received in 2014, I’m excited to see what 2016 brings. Companies large and small are invited to enter – size or scale has no impact on innovation and creativity when it comes to achieving remarkable outcomes in the mining industry.”
“In fact, I’d encourage small companies to enter, as it’s a fantastic way to gain recognition in front of the Queensland mining industry’s biggest players.”
“Awards like the Queensland Mining Contractor Awards are a way of broadcasting your internal improvements and innovations to the wider industry, as well as differentiating yourself from your competitors in a tough industry environment,” Ms Currie said.
Eligible projects must have been completed in Queensland between April 2014 and December 2015.
Entries will be judged by a panel of independent industry experts, to be announced later this month. The 2014 judging panel included a coal company’s managing director, a process improvement specialist, and an industry consultant and past supply chain manager.
One exceptional entry will then be chosen to be named the 2016 Queensland Mining Contractor of the Year, for outstanding performance across all categories.
Award finalists and winners will be announced at a gala dinner during the 2016 Queensland Mining and Engineering Exhibition (QME) in Mackay. Tickets for the dinner will go on sale to the public in late March, with tables already reserved for major industry players and award finalists.
Submission forms and entry packs are available at www.bbminingclub.com/awards. Entries are open until Friday 29 April, 2016.
An exclusive amount of sponsorship opportunities are still available for the Gala Dinner, held in Mackay during QME 2016. Contact Jodie Currie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
