Enter Now! PA Resources Council Invites Submissions To Lens On Litter Photo Contest

PA Resources Council invites submissions for its Lens On Litter Photo Contest to capture ugly and avoidable examples of littering across Pennsylvania.  The deadline for submissions is October 31.

“Littering and dumping impacts Pennsylvanians everywhere and is both an environmental and economic problem,” said Darren Spielman, Executive Director of PRC. “We must tackle the Commonwealth’s growing waste problem and start moving toward the goals of a zero-waste and circular economy where post-consumer materials are reused and recycled.” 

The contest is open to amateur photographers only. Contestants will be divided into two categories—students and adults. 

Six prizes (three to each group) will be awarded, with the first-place winner receiving $500, second-place $250 and third-place $100. 

Entrants are also encouraged to initiate a clean-up of their photographed area for extra judging points.

Program sponsors include Carolyn Capaldi, Robert & Mary Capaldi, Sheetz, Inc., and Wegmans.

For all the details, visit PRC's Lens On Litter Photo Contest webpage. Questions may be directed to
