Pennsylvania Resources Council Invites Entries in Lens On Litter Photo Contest
2004 winner by Karen Hohman

The Pennsylvania Resources Council invites student and adult amateur photographers from the around the state to be part of the 24th annual Lens On Litter Contest designed to highlight litter and illegal dumping problems in the Commonwealth.

Entries are due October 31.

“This is the only contest I know where photographers can use their creativity to show something ugly like litter, old tires and rusting appliances and win,” said Larry Myers, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Resources Council. “It is a unique combination of art and promoting awareness of an important environmental issue everyone can see.”

“But these photos have more than an educational purpose, they will turn art into action,” said Myers. “The sites in the photos will be targeted by the Pennsylvania Resources Council for cleanup by working with local groups.”

The Lens On Litter contest is open to amateur photographers taking photographs of litter in Pennsylvania.

There is a top prize of $1,000 in each of two categories: adult and student. Eight additional prizes, four to each group, will be awarded with second place winners receiving $500, third place $250, and fourth place $150.

This year the Lens on Litter contest is sponsored by: AAA Mid-Atlantic, Inc., The Hershey Company, Kimberly Clark Corporation, Rohm and Haas Company, and Wawa Inc.

given to photo, and location of litter site. If the entry is from a school age child, the school grade and school name must be provided. Photos will not be returned and will become the property of the PRC.
