PA Resources Council Invites Entries To 35th Annual Lens On Litter Photo Contest

The PA Resources Council invites student and adult amateur photographers throughout the state to enter the 35th annual Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Photo Contest designed to highlight the impact of litter on the environment and scenic qualities of the Commonwealth.
The deadline for entries is December 31.
Entrants are encouraged to focus their lenses not just on litter, but also the visual and environmental impacts of litter.
Event organizers can also use submitted photos to identify sites for cleanup through local action. 
“The Lens on Litter Photo Contest provides photographers across the state an opportunity to use this art form to bring attention to what is all too often ignored: the very real impacts of litter,” said PRC Managing Director Justin Stockdale.  “While we universally dislike litter, we too frequently walk and drive past it without truly recognizing its impact.”
Cash prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries in the amounts of $500, $250 and $100 respectively and winners will see their photos used in a variety of promotional venues. 
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges representing various anti-litter organizations and initiatives. 
The 2019 Lens on Litter contest is sponsored by Wawa Inc., Wegmans and Sheetz.  
“PRC is honored to work with our partners to present this unique opportunity for aspiring artists to use their craft for the good of all Pennsylvanians and our environment,” said Stockdale.
In 2018, the Lens on Litter Photo Contest was renamed in memory of longtime PRC volunteer and contest director Gene Capaldi. 
Photographers can upload entries (limit three per person) at the Lens on Litter Contest webpage or mail originals to the PA Resources Council, 3606 Providence Road, Newtown Square, PA 19073.  
All entries must include entrant’s name, address, telephone number, email address, title given to photo, location of litter site and how he/she learned of the contest.  
If the entry is submitted by a school-age child, the school name and student’s grade and age must also be noted.  
Photos will not be returned and will become the property of the PRC.
