NEEF’s #H2OBigPicture Photo Contest 2016

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Submission Deadline: May 27th 2016

The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water invite you to submit photos that demonstrate how you protect water quality where you live.

Whether it’s installing a rain barrel to divert stormwater and reduce your water use, keeping yard waste away from a storm drain, or taking part in a community stream cleanup, simple actions can have a big impact on water quality, as well as the plants, animals, and people that rely on these water resources—it’s all part of the #H2OBigPicture.

The next time you do something to help protect water quality:

  • Snap a photo of the action and submit it through NEEF’s #H2OBigPicture Photo Contest page.
  • Include a caption describing where the picture was taken, why that place is important to you, and what you’re doing in the picture to protect water quality.

The H2OBigPicture Photo Contest will run from April 11, 2016, to May 27, 2016. The contest is open to the public, ages 13 and up. Winners will be selected and judged by an internal panel after the contest has closed. Submissions will be judged on the photo’s focus on water quality protection, inclusion of the required text in the caption, and originality and quality of the image. Please email (link sends e-mail) with any questions. Click here for the complete #H2OBigPicture Photo Contest Rules.
