2018 Green Amendment Photocontest

July 4, 2018, 11:59 pm EDT

The Delaware Riverkeeper Network as part of our For the Generations campaign is proud to announce our 2018 Summer Photo Contest focusing on Diversity in Nature. One of the chief tenets of the For The Generations movement is that nature is for all to enjoy, and to reflect this idea, photographs should capture scenes in which people from all walks of life interact with, share, and enjoy nature. The photo contest will run from Wednesday, June 6th and end appropriately on July 4th, Independence Day. To participate, photos should be posted to on the participant’s own Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram page using the hashtag #GreenAmendment. To be considered for a prize, a high resolution photo should be sent to photos@delawareriverkeeper.org accompanied by a photorelease form.

For the Generations is a nation-wide initiative that aims to obtain and secure constitutional amendments in every state, protecting our right to a healthy environment, for the benefit of all people.


  • The photo contest will run from Wednesday, June 6th to Wednesday, July 4th, 11:59 pm. Every Wednesday, a finalist will be selected from the pool of submissions of the preceding week. A Grand Prize winner will be selected out of the four finalists at the conclusion of the contest.
