Photo Contest Focuses on Waste Management

August 29, 2008

The San JoséMunicipality, Grupo Holcim’s Geocycle and Laboratorios Stein have launched a photography contest with the goal of improving waste management practices in the country.

Photo entries must be related to one or more of the following themes: environment, in terms of raising awareness; social, emphasizing the social benefits and better quality of life in a clean community; and corporate, seeking to motivate the private sector to get behind waste-management initiatives.

The contest is open through Oct. 3, to both amateurs and professionals, nationals and foreign residents, and is divided into three age categories: adolescents 12 to 18, young adults 19 to 25, and adults 26 and up. Each entrant may submit a maximum of three photographs. Instructions and forms for entering the contest can be found on the municipality’s Web site at www.msj.go.cr/concurso_fotografia/concurso_fotografia.html.

Winners and prizes will be announced at an awards ceremony set for Nov. 3. The top 15 photos will be exhibited in the National Gallery in San José’s Children’s Museum and will be published in a calendar and other materials designed to spread the contest’s message.
