COMPETITION - Waste•smART – creative competition
WHEN: The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2013 at 12:00 Central European Time
WHAT: What does waste look like? Photo, cartoon and video competition
WHAT... MORE?: From the site:
Waste•smART is a new competition from the EEA, inviting entries in three categories – photography, cartoons and short films. The best entry in each category will win € 500, and there will be a further € 500 ‘youth prize’, given to the best entry from someone born between 1989 and 1995. The competition is open to citizens of the all EEA member and cooperating countries. All participants must be 18 or older.
Entries could touch on a variety of themes. For example, your entry could be a photograph illustrating wasted food, construction waste, landfills, and recycling. Or perhaps you have an idea for a cartoon showing how we can better reduce, re-use or recycle waste. If you are a filmmaker, you could make a video about how waste policy could be improved, or the resources and energy needed to maintain wasteful lifestyles. However, these are just a few ideas, entrants are encouraged to come up with their own angle.
HOW MUCH: Free! Just as we like it. Do check the rules
COMMENTS: Seems pretty clear cut and I'm happy to share. Mind you, as a cartoonist, photographer and even short videographer there is the temptation to enter too... and this as always rather increases the competition!
So, if you win and beat me out... do at least doff a hat to Junkk.com at the awards! Good luck.
