Photography competition

Following the good success of the second edition held in 2017 we are proud to launch the third edition of "Waste To Photo", the photo contest connected to the Sardinia Symposium.

The competition is open to all, although focused on the Symposium delegates, with the specific aim of recreating a scenario representing the global situation with regard to waste and landfill. Suggested thematic areas are as follows:

Waste and Society Waste and Art (creative reuse, sculptures, etc…) • Waste and Resources (use of new materials, original methods of reuse and recycling, etc) Waste and Urban transformations (wastewater management, state-of-the-art landfills, uncontrolled dumps, functional recovery of landfills, etc) • Waste and Architecture: buildings for waste collection, transfer stations, landscaping of old landfills Waste and Nature

The most significant shots will be used to illustrate the differences, the contradictions, the difficulties, progresses, and more besides, encountered by this complicated issue in a series of contexts throughout the world, ranging from the developing countries to the more industrialised nations. Accordingly, a photography exhibition will be set up using the best shots selected by the Organising Committee. 

The 1st prize winner will receive a coupon with a value of € 300.

Photos should be submitted electronically to the e-mail address no later than the deadline of May 31st 2019
The winning photo will be declared and a prize awarded during the Symposium Gala dinner.
