New Photo Mission: Pollution In My World

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

It’s a real challenge this week with The Huffington Post – finding great shots of pollution

Unfortunately, pollution is a very real problem. Affecting the air, lands and oceans of our world, it is everywhere. Also, let’s be honest – it’s difficult to photograph. We are taught to see it as unappealing, ugly and unwanted. That’s why this week, The Huffington Post photo mission Pollution In My World is all about trying to capture images of pollution.

Your Mission: Take a look around to see the pollution you usually overlook. Instead of sweeping over it, take a moment to find an interesting angle. Try to find new ways to shoot this less-than-beautiful subject. And then, when you’ve shot it, clean it up if you can!

Your Reward: Winners will appear in the Moving Image series on The Huffington Post, as well as in Huffington, the iPad Magazine. Runners up will appear in a video in the article recap on the Huffington Post, as well as on the EyeEm blog.

How To Take Part: Capture your image and tag it with Pollution In My World. Your photo will then be automatically added to the album. If you want to add a photo that you’ve already uploaded, just go to your profile, view the photo and select “Edit Photo”. From there you can add the tag “Pollution In My World”.

Deadline: October 8, 2014
