Photo contest vs. mass consumerism

A buddy of mine is running a photo contest with a cause. Dave is living with just 100 personal possessions in an effort to raise awareness of the problems caused by mass consumerism.

The 1st prize winner will receive $100 plus $100 donated to the Plant with Purpose Trees Fund in the winner’s name. All winning photographs will be printed, matted, and displayed in the lobby of Rohr Hall at Point Loma Nazarene University for two weeks in December.

The theme is: Challenging Stuff. Mass consumerism is a way of life. Photos should challenge assumptions about consumerism.

I’m one of the judges along with photographers Scott Bennet and Marcus Emerson. The contest is free to enter and helps a good cause. Please check it out.
