Eligiblity: Participants may not be employed by EarthShare New Jersey or member
organizations; however, volunteers may enter. Those under 18 must have parental permission to

Jurying: Photos will be judged by a panel from New Jersey’s environmental community. Prize winners will be selected by popular vote.
Promotion of Works: Images submitted as part of this competition may be used by EarthShare New Jersey for the purpose of furthering the mission after the contest has concluded. Photographers will be given credit for any images of their work used on Earthshare New Jersey’s social media platforms, website, digital newsletters, printed programming, etc.
