So submit your photo and let's picture a better world.

Group Rules

TERMS OF USE 
 
General Electric Company ("GE") maintains and makes available the “ecomagination photo project” (the “Promotion”) for your personal entertainment.  

 Please read these Terms of Use carefully before participating in the Promotion.  If you do not accept these Terms of Use, then you may not participate in the Promotion.  By participating in the Promotion you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use are subject to change by GE at any time, effective when posted on this website.  Your continued use after such notice will constitute acceptance by you of such changes. 

 
Overview. The Promotion enables a person between 12:01 EST on October 18, 2010 and the time that GE meets its maximum charitable donation goal as discussed more fully below (but no later than December 31, 2010) to submit one (1) photograph demonstrating the power of wind, the purity of water or the beauty of light (each, a “Photograph”) and have that Photograph displayed in a public gallery along with other submitted Photographs on GE’s website found at photoproject.ecomagination.com/ and on the GE’s Flickr Group Page at www.flickr.com/groups/ecomagination. GE has a goal of donating $16,667 to each of the following three charities: charity: water, d.light and Practical Action in connection with the Promotion. GE intends on reaching its goal by donating $1.67 to one of the three charities for every Photograph submitted in the respective category (i.e., wind, water or light). Every submission of a Photograph of water will result in a donation of $1.67 by GE to charity: water. Every submission of a Photograph of light will result in a donation of $1.67 by GE to D. Light. Every submission of a Photograph of wind will result in a donation of $1.67 by GE to Practical Action. GE will make a $1.67 donation to one of the above noted charities for each Photograph submitted in the respective category, up to $16,667 total to each charity. Limit of three (3) Photographs may be submitted per person per day during the Promotion.
