2014 UALR Earth Day Sustainable Photo Contest

The UALR Sustainability Committee is looking for your “take” on what it means to be sustainable.

Submission Deadline: Midnight – Wednesday, April 9, 2014


Post your photos on the UALR Sustainability Page – click on “Add Photos” button on the top right of the page and upload your photo with the hashtag: #UALRearthday.

Being sustainable has many implications for our community – economic, social, and environmental and the challenge for this photography contest is for you to capture the spirit of sustainability (e.g. a rehab house or factory that has been refurnished into a green space, a green landscape, etcetera).
This contest is for photographers of all skill levels and your creative approach is encouraged. Most importantly, have fun as you provide us with your “take” on what it means to be sustainable!
Prizes will be given for the photo with the most likes and for the top two photos as determined by the 2014 judging team.

Photo Contest Rules:

– To enter, you must be a UALR Student.
– Photos must be your original work and a maximum of two entries is allowed per person.
