In celebration of our 30th anniversary, Kinross employees across the globe participated in a photo contest with hundreds of excellent submissions! Over a four-week period, we received over 200 employee submissions totaling over 550 photos of employees sharing their inspiring stories, breathtaking photos and exciting ‘Day in the Life’ at Kinross submissions.
While the competition was fierce, three winners were selected based on the following categories – best landscape photo, best story submission and best selfie. Check out our three winners and their photo submissions below!
Best Landscape Photo: Ramon Macias, Process Operator, Round Mountain
Ramon captured this beautiful photo of Round Mountain in the early morning hours. See his photo caption below:
“As the sky painted itself in hues of soft gold and rosy pink, the sun gracefully emerged from the horizon, casting a radiant glow that kissed Round Mountain awake.”
