7th Annual Photo Contest

The Southeast Diesel Collaborative is pleased to announce its annual Clean Diesel Photo Contest. The photo contest will be part of the upcoming SEDC’s 13th Annual Partners meeting. The photos should reflect the mission statement of the Southeast Diesel Collaborative (SEDC) and each should illustrate and highlight the theme for the entered category in a creative manner. Entrants may submit up to three images per each category listed below and may enter a total of six images. All photos are eligible for the People’s Choice Awards which will be based upon the results of voting by all attendees at the Meeting. Awards will be made for the first, second and third place images in each category. All judging will be “blind” with the photographer’s name not displayed during the judging period. All submitted photographs must have been taken by the SEDC member submitting the image (please). Please also note two very important rules: Only submit what you have personally photographed!-no ad campaign photos! Also, all photographs must have a short description of how the diesel engine(s) or diesel vehicle(s) in the photo have been cleaned up in order to reduce emissions. All photographs are also eligible for the Judges’ Special Best of Show award. Photos should be between 5” X 7” and 11” X14” in size and do not need to be matted. Please read the following rules and information carefully. Please submit your entries by September 1, 2018 so they may be put into a presentation for the meeting.
