Eligibility:

Entries are welcome from ocean enthusiasts, scuba divers, beach combers, and water lovers worldwide whose photo(s) document the trash they have collected from aquatic environments. All submissions must be accompanied by a completed Submission Form, and Model Release Form(s) if necessary, in order for the submission to be eligible. If the contestant is under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must complete and sign the Submission and Model Release Forms. Management, employees, and family members of the NAUI Green Diver Initiative, the Roddenberry Dive Team, contest sponsors, and their subsidiaries are prohibited from winning any prizes.

Submission Guidelines:

Participants are encouraged to collect trash from underwater dives, as well as beach and coastal visits or clean-ups. Trash can be collected at any time and does not need to be during a sanctioned event. Once trash has been collected, individuals should take a photo(s) of the trash, with or without themselves in the photo(s), and submit the photo(s). Photo(s) can be of a single item or of multiple items.

Each photo submission counts as a single entry into the contest and is eligible for the monthly and grand prizes. There is no limit to the number of photos that may be submitted by any one person over the span of the contest. However, multiple photos of the same piece or pile of trash will only count as one entry. Only photos of the trash collected will be eligible for the monthly and grand prizes.

Image Requirements:

Entries may be black and white or color digital scans or digital camera images. Scans should be at least 300 dpi. Please keep your file sizes down to no greater than 1 to 1.5 MB per image (compressed size). Preferred image format is JPEG. Please do not send prints or slides. Should you win and we need a higher resolution version of your photo we will contact you at that time.

Submission Requirements:

Email your photo(s) and Submission Form to nauigreendiver@naui.org.

Two monthly prizes will be awarded each month during the contest.

There are three Grand Prizes that will be awarded at the end of the contest. Two of the Grand Prizes will be chosen by NAUI Green Diver Initiative and Roddenberry Dive Team officials and will be based on the overall "Most Unique Piece of Trash" photo and the overall "Most Amount of Trash" photo. The winner of the final Grand Prize, the free scuba gear set, will be randomly selected. The Grand Prize winners will be contacted via email and announced online at www.nauigreendiver.org and www.roddenberrydiveteam.com by December 16, 2013.
