From September 10th – October 31st, the Surfrider Foundation presents the 2nd annual Found Objects photo contest. Found Objects is a an opportunity for people to share items that they’ve found [and cleaned-up!] off of their local beach or waterway. Participants are encouraged to take a photo of the objects found on the beach, arranged in a creative and artistic way AND share a story about the photograph. This story can include activities, memories or what Contestant (and their community) are doing to protect that beach. To submit an entry, post the photo to your Instagram or Twitter account, write your story, and then tag @surfrider and use the hashtag #SurfriderFound to be entered in the contest.
