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 anyone, although focused on the Symposium delegates, and it aims to illustrate through powerful photography the differences, the contradictions, the difficulties, the progresses of Waste Management throughout the world, ranging from the developing countries to the more industrialised nations, recreating the scenario of the global situation with regard to waste and landfills.

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, etc. Waste and Nature

During the Symposium, a photography exhibition will be set up using the most significant shots, selected by the Organising Secretariat. The best shots will also have the chance to be published as covers on one of the next issues of Detritus Journal.

Photos should be submitted electronically by e-mail to no later than 31st May 2019

The 1st prize winner will receive a coupon with a value of € 300.
The winning photo will be declared and a prize awarded during the closing Gala dinner.
