Portland, OR: The Council for Responsible Sport announced today that it will conduct a photo contest throughout the month of February. Pictures should be submitted via Instagram, with the tag #responsiblesport and a descriptive caption, including event namd and/or @Twitter handle. Prizes include $100 credit toward the Council"�s 2014 certification application fee for photo of the week winners, and an additional $500 credit for the photo of the month. Pictures must be submitted by February 28, 2014. "�We"�re eager to see what people think responsible sport looks like,' said Council executive director Keith Peters. "�Last fall, we were inspired by the #litterati Instagram campaign, and designed our new Web site with Litterati"�s digital landfill in mind-only we want to showcase the great work event organizers are doing to reduce the environmental impact and enhance the social benefits of their events.' Peters added: "�While we are building the "�Looks Like"� photo gallery on our Web site, we will be conducting the voting for photo of the week and, ultimately, photo of the month on our Facebook page. Event organizers are encouraged to have family, friends and fans vote early and often, though folks can only like a particular photo once.' Weekly albums will be posted for voting on February 10, 17, 24 and March 3. Voting for photo of the month will take place March 10-14. Facebook voting will take place here, while the growing #responsiblesport photo gallery can be viewed here.
