Environment in a Day! Your Earth Day moment to shine!

2012 April 20

Photography in Arches National Park, Southeastern Utah by David Hiser, 1972

Earth Day happens just once a year. What will this global moment look like? Get ready to share your best photo of the day.

How can you join in? Join Flickr if you haven’t yet and start thinking about what view of Earth Day is yours to share. Every shot counts and you do not need to be a professional photographer to share what you see. The best variety of images taken on 4.22.12 will be gathered in a map of the moment! That means scenes of things good (after Earth Day cleanups); bad (an area overlooked); landscapes, city-scapes, humans, wildlife, wild-humans – it’s really up to you! Check out how easy it is to even participate with your phone with Flickr mobile!

Take a photo any time during the twenty-four hour period of April 22 where you are, then upload it to your Flickr account to share it with the State of the Environment group.

Who will capture the first 2012 Earth Day sunrise? What will Earth Day look like in American Samoa, Utah, Maine?

We’re accepting one (1) contribution per Flickr member into the group from midnight ET Saturday, April 21 until midnight ET Saturday, April 28. You have a week to submit your single photo, but it must be taken on Earth Day April 22!

This is open for global participation, but EPA will be highlighting one photo from each U.S. state or territory and featuring the state with the most participation!

Spread the word. Get outside. Have some fun and capture the moment where humankind celebrates our planet Earth.

    Those with Earth Day/Sustainability photos may want to enter this contest.
    You could win $$$ for a local nonprofit, and increase your group’s visibility.

    Or a Kindle Fire. Good luck!

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.

    It is good to consider the earth.
