DC wins BMA Lantern Award for best original photography

Posted on 06 December 2012

Drilling Contractor won a prestigious Lantern Award from the Houston Chapter of the Business Marketing Association on 29 November in the Best Original Photography category. The photo, which was used on the cover of the 2012 DC media kit, was taken by IADC creative director Brian Parks on the Alaska North Slope in November 2011.

The photo, which was also used with a feature article in the November/December 2011 issue of DC, shows Doyon Drilling’s Rig 16 working in Arctic tundra, with the sun sitting artfully low on the horizon behind the drilling rig.
