AGI invites submissions for its Earth Science Week 2017 photo contest. Eligible individuals are invited to submit entries for this year’s photography contest, titled “Earth and Human Activity Here.” New to this year’s photo contest, AGI and Earth Science Week present the “Earth and Human Activity Here” Photo Map. Select entries will be featured on the map, linked to the location of origin. This innovation is intended to serve as an educational resource, prompting discussions in classrooms and other settings.
As entries are submitted, AGI will populate the map with examples of ways that people interact with Earth systems where they live. Program participants, students, and teachers are invited to visit the website and view the wide variety of forms these interactions take.
- The contest is open to interested persons of any age
- You must be a resident of the United States or an international member of an AGI Member Society or an AGI International Associate Society to enter
- Entries must be composed of original, authentic, unpublished material and must be the sole property of the entrant, not previously submitted to any other contest. Published material includes that which has been posted on the World Wide Web. This includes, but is not limited to, Facebook, or any other social network Website where photos have been posted and shared.
The winner will receive a prize of $300 USD, a copy of AGI’s The Geoscience Handbook, and his or her photograph will be used on the Earth Science Week Website. The winner’s and finalists’ names will be posted on the Earth Science Week Website. All other expenses not stated are the sole responsibility of the winners. No cash substitution for prizes will be permitted and prizes are nontransferable.
