PA Resources Council: Help Celebrate Earth Day By Putting Your 'Lens On Litter'

Wondering how you can help celebrate Earth Day this year?  Since 1984 the Pennsylvania Resources Council has sponsored an annual
Lens on Litter Photo Contest, not to glorify litter, but to call attention to the litter problem in communities across the Commonwealth. 
The deadline for entries is October 31.

Thousands of photos have been submitted over the years depicting Litterbugs at work. 

Pennsylvanians are again asked to submit photos of unusual or unsightly examples of litter in their neighborhoods for a chance to win up to $500! 

Entries are judged on the criteria of anti-litter message, originality, photographic technique, quality of photo, originality of title and severity of the litter. 

Extra judging points are also awarded to those who conduct a litter clean-up and submit photographic proof of their efforts—think Earth Day! 

Questions may be directed to and contest details, an online entry form as well as previous winners and current sponsors, can be found at the Lens On Litter Contest webpage..

PRC is pleased to recognize Sheetz, Inc. and Robert & Mary Capaldi as our 2022 inaugural sponsors, and invite any other litter-conscious businesses or individuals to join them in celebrating Earth Day by helping to bring awareness to litter blight across the state by sponsoring this program.  Send an email to to learn more.
