We are looking for the single photo that will represent the global youth of the world and their wish to protect sharks at CITES. Elements that will go into the winning photo are: (1) smiling, happy people; (2) photos with celebrities; (3) iconic locations in the background; (4) artistic quality of the photo; (5) likes; (6) shares; and (7) comments. Email up to five entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our editors will pick their favorites and upload them to an album on Shark Defenders Facebook page (we encourage you to have your friends like, share, and comment on the photo). A winner will be chosen on February 14, 2013. Points will be deducted for: (1) photos with no people; and (2) doctored photos (i.e. using photoshop instead of an actual cutout of Shark Stanley).
For example, when Shark Defenders was trying to get the Obama Administration to respond to our shark petition on We The People, we posted a photo of Barack Obama on a skateboard with nunchaku jumping over a shark while dodging an exploding helicopter. We think this photo might be doctored, so we would not consider it for this contest.
Best ‘Shark Stanley’ Facebook Album
Create an album on your Facebook page and upload photos of your friends and family holding Shark Stanley. Email the album link to email@example.com (make sure the album is public; if we can’t see it, we can’t judge it). We’ll pick the best album on February 14, 2013.
Consideration will be given to: (1) number of photos with different people; (2) number of people tagged in the album; (3) likes; (4) shares; (5) comments; and (6) photos from multiple countries. We encourage you to have your friends like, share, and comment on the album. Points will be deducted for: (1) photos with no people; (2) and doctored photos (i.e. using photoshop instead of an actual cutout of Shark Stanley)..
Best ‘Shark Stanley’ Media
Media, whether it is YouTube, television, blog, or print, will help Shark Stanley travel around the world. This category is intended for our partners, but is open to the general public. Create a YouTube video, blog, or appear on television or in the newspaper and send us the link at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consideration will be given to: (1) global reach of the media; (2) creativity of the piece; (3) resulting web traffic at www.sharkdefenders.com from the media. We’ll pick the best media after the CITES meeting on March 31, 2013.
