Welcome to AMM Inner Circle 

This is your insider’s guide to the metals industry, with in-depth commentary and analysis by AMM’s executive editor. Separate from AMM's daily news coverage, AMM Inner Circle will offer market intelligence of a different kind. This is where you can get inside the heads of industry executives and market experts, where conversations happen, where our editors can share some of their insights outside of the constraints of traditional news and market stories. We'll take you behind the numbers and explain what they mean, post a wealth of reference material, and really dig into the issues facing the market today - join the Inner Circle and gain access to a new level of market intelligence. 

All sections are accessible to AMM subscribers. Sections with the unlocked icon are open to the public.

Grab your smart phone, head for the nearest hunk of steel you can find and shoot away.

In a move to promote its Facebook page and raison d’etre, the Brussels-based World Steel Association (WorldSteel) has launched its first-ever photography competition around the theme: Steel in your life.

Winners will be selected by popular vote, with photographers snapping the top three images awarded an iPad mini.

To enter the competition and cast a vote for your favorite entry, submit your photo to WorldSteel’s Facebook page.

And a word to the wise, don’t waste any time. The competition runs from Jan. 30 to Feb. 28, and the list of possible subjects is dizzying.

For a little extra inspiration, you might want to download the official competition poster from WorldSteel’s website. Or you can tap into a fast-paced video highlighting how steel touches our lives in forms ranging from plow blades (thank you John Deere) to jet landing gears.
