“Lens On Litter” Photo Contest

Since exposure leads to prevention, the objective of PRC’s Lens on Litter Photo Contest is to focus public attention on the problems of litter in Pennsylvania. Photos help to heighten litter consciousness by showing how it threatens public health and safety, scenic beauty, property values, the environment, pets and wildlife.

Exposure Leads to Prevention

The Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Photo Contest, a program of the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC), is an annual statewide photography contest rewarding amateur photographers who snap striking images of litter across the Commonwealth.

scenic beauty, property values, the environment and wildlife.

Judging: Entries will be judged on six criteria; 1. anti-litter message, 2. originality,
3. photographic technique, 4. quality of
photo, 5. originality of title and 6. severity of the litter.

Prizes: A top prize of $500 will be awarded in each of two categories: adult and student (through Grade 12). Four additional prizes will be awarded with second place winners receiving $250 and third place $100 in each group.

Deadline: October 31, 2022

Where: The photos must be taken in Pennsylvania by Commonwealth residents.
