Greening the Apple’s First Reader Submitted Photo Contest

A Greener Apple Photo Contest—Call for Submissions

You are invited to participate in Greening the Apple’s first photography contest. The topic is, “What does sustainability look like in New York City?” Pick your best work, submit your photos easily online, and have a chance at some exposure and recognition on our blog. Photography is story-telling. Share your stories with the rest of us.  Your deadline is midnight, August 12, 2011 (EST).

You might ask, “What is sustainability?” For our purposes here, sustainability incorporates strategies, events, and procedures that meet society’s present needs without compromising the needs for future generations. Sustainable development can be facilitated by policies that integrate environmental, economic, and social values in decision making. This topic is meant to be broad—a way to link your life and what you see to your own definition of sustainability. In other words, how do you see New York City’s connection to the environment?

Who is eligible to enter?
