On the Brink Winter Photo Contest

Add caption
I am very pleased to announce the On the Brink Winter Photo Contest. Each person may submit up to three entries between now and the closing date of March 21. Entries received after March 21 are ineligible. The theme of the photo contest is within the broad idea of the environment as discussed in the following paragraph. The first place winner will receive a $200 award in the form of a gift card and the two runners up will receive a copy of my latest book, Environmental Sustainability in a Time of Change.

Theme:  We all love the environment, but the world is changing. The environment today encompasses the out of doors in all of its natural beauty, but also the out of doors that is changing as a result of human impact. The theme of the photo contest thus includes representations of the environment that are natural and those that are impacted in some way by human agency. Thus, photos should capture some aspect of the environment that tells us the state of environment as it is at this particular time in the history of our planet.

All of the photos submitted to the contest must be taken between now and March 21. I will share all entries on this blog. Photos must be submitted as a jpeg by email to robertbrinkmann@rocketmail.com The entries will be judged by a panel of three environmental and art experts based on the composition of the image and the relationship to the theme of the contest.

I really look forward to seeing the entries!
