October 5 - 9, 2015    NO CITY , Italy
Open Photo Competition on Waste Management and landfills.

Photography is a powerful means of communication, of visual expression, as well as an extraordinary form of art available to all and capable of evoking emotions, portraying social transformations, denouncing serious situations or acting as a testimony to important changes.

This year the Organising Committee of Sardinia 2015 has opted to launch a new initiative, "Waste to Photo", a photography competition open to all and focused on the Symposium delegates, with the specific aim of recreating a scenario representing the global situation with regard to waste and landfill.

The most significant shots will be used to illustrate the differences, the contradictions, the difficulties, progresses and more besides, encountered by this complicated issue in a series of contexts throughout the world, ranging from the developing countries to the more industrialised nations.

Accordingly, a photography exhibition will be set up using the best shots selected by the Organising Committee. The winning photo will be declared and a prize awarded during the Symposium Gala dinner.

The thematic areas for the competition are as follows:
- Waste and Society.
- Waste and Art (creative reuse, sculptures, etc...
- Waste and Resources: use of new materials, original methods of reuse and recycling, etc...
- Waste and Urban transformations: wastewater management, state-of-the-art landfills, uncontrolled dumps, functional recovery of landfills, etc...
- Waste and Architecture: buildings for waste collection, transfer stations, landscaping of old landfills.
- Waste and Nature.

Photos should be submitted electronically to the e-mail address info@sardiniasymposium.it no later than the deadline of July 30th 2015.
