The Litterbug Continues To Strike, Strike Back By Entering The PA Resources Council Lens On Litter Photo Contest

The notorious Litterbug continues to remind us about the environmental and economic problems that litter can cause. 

In previous years, the Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Photo Contest showed him that the people of Pennsylvania really DO care about the litter that spoils the beautiful countryside, quaint towns and busy city streets of our Commonwealth. 

Unfortunately, the battle is not yet over. 

To focus attention on this ugly and avoidable environmental problem, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) reminds residents of its annual Lens on Litter Photo Contest, with a deadline of October 31, 2022. 

Use your camera or mobile device to snap eye-catching examples of litter in your Pennsylvania community. 

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.

Entries (limit five per person, no smaller than 4x6 and no larger than 8x10) should be sent to PRC Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Contest, 1671 North Providence Road, Media, PA 19063. 

High resolution digital submissions may be sent to lensonlitter@prc.org.  All entries (including digital) must include the entrant’s name, address, telephone number, email address, title given to photo, location of litter site and how you learned about the contest. 

Students should also include age, grade and name of school. Photos submitted without all required information will be disqualified. All photos may be used by PRC at their discretion.

Program sponsors-to-date include Carolyn Capaldi, Robert & Mary Capaldi, Sheetz, Inc. and Wegmans. Individuals, organizations or businesses interested in helping to sponsor this anti-litter program, please reach out at lensonlitter@prc.org.
