Combating Climate Change…One Tweet at a Time

istock_7709409 A picture can be worth a thousand words, but in this case, yours could be worth $1,000! Today Dell is launching a contest to celebrate World Environment Day, and the prize is $1,000 to the non-profit of your choice.  In following with the United Nation’s mission of ‘combating climate change,’ we encourage you to go to to submit your photos of what you are doing to combat climate change. Whether it’s installing solar panels in Uganda, riding your bike to work, composting last night’s leftovers or something new that we’ve never even considered, we want your photos. Finalists will be narrowed down to the top five based on the number of retweets, so you’ll have to recruit your friends to get behind your submission. The winner will be narrowed down from the top five based on originality and impact.

To enter just @reply to Twitter handle @Dell_WED with a link to your photo. Submit your photos directly from your mobile phone using Twitpic or provide a link to one of your own photos posted on Flickr. Regardless of which you prefer, be sure that you send it to @ Dell_WED. The contest will last from June 4th– June 22nd. Submissions will also be posted in a gallery on Mother Nature Network and shared on Dell’s Facebook page. Join Dell’s Facebook page to stay in the loop on future contests and Dell news. For complete contest details please visit this page.

World Environment Day has a special significance to us at Dell, and we’re excited to be supporting the global fight against climate change.  Looking forward to your submissions. Good luck to all!
