Contest Brief

*** UPDATE WE ARE JACKPOTTING THE PRIZE TO US$12,500 AND EXTENDING FOR 30 MORE DAYS DUE TO POPULAR REQUEST ***

Here at Freelancer.com we’re passionate about changing lives, whether it’s helping freelancers around the world gain a better quality of life, connecting
businesses with enormously talented people who can help them reach new heights or leaving the planet in better shape than we found it.

That’s why we’re giving the #trashtag movement a boost with the Freelancer Clean Up the World Challenge.

We’re asking you to pitch in and clean up the planet. Find an area in your community that needs cleaning and take it from shabby to sparkling. We want you to send us three photos: before the clean up, after the clean up and a photo of the waste being collected.

*** MAKE SURE TO PRINT AND DISPLAY THE FREELANCER CLEAN UP THE WORLD TEMPLATE IN ALL THREE PHOTOS AS A PRINT OUT THAT YOU ARE HOLDING (ATTACHED TO THIS CONTEST). WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING PHOTOSHOPPED IMAGES. ***

To enter, upload your pictures to this contest, and don’t forget to post on social media with the hashtags #trashtag and #freelancercleanup. The best cleanup effort will win US$12,500!

In addition, everyone who joins the contest and makes an effort to clean up will earn a Do-Gooder Badge!

We would also love to see some videos of the process (e.g. timelapse), but you must have the three still images to enter.

Here are some #trashtag images to get you inspired:

So get to work and let’s make the world a cleaner place.

A few things to remember:

1. Safety first. Wear gloves, and make sure they’re thick, durable gardening style gloves. If possible, wear breathing protection. Don’t clean up hazardous waste. Leave that to the professionals. Don’t clean up near roads with a speed limit over 25mph or 40km/h, and make sure you’re at least 3 meters from the roadside. We want a clean planet, but we don’t want anyone hurt.

2. By entering the contest, you agree that Freelancer.com will not be liable for any injury sustained, any loss or damage to property or any act of omission, negligence or fault on the part of the participant (you).

3. Make sure to include the printed Freelancer Clean Up the World template with your name or team name and location in the before, after and waste collection photos.

4. Post your pics on social media with the #trashtag and #freelancercleanup hashtags.

5. By entering the contest you are consenting to having your photograph taken and displayed for promotional or other purposes without your further consent.

6. Tell us more about your clean up experience by filling out this form: [login to view URL]

    This is my thought! The $12500 shouldn't be given to only one person. Some of the people that have submitted their entry in this contest have tried and have inconvenienced themselves in one way or the other.

    There should be more than one winner.

    I will suggest that the contest holder select 10 BEST, REAL, ORIGINAL and GENUINE entry and divide the US$12500 among the 10 winners.

    I'm a mathematician and the division goes thus

    12500/10=1250

    Hence, each of the 10 lucky winners should be awarded with US$1250.

    For those that submitted fake entry, I will recommend that the management of this website close their account.

      I am agree to your suggestions, apart from it Contest holder can distribute it like the top entry gets $6500 and remaining funds should be distributed in the other top 10 entries or prize should be increased in that case.

      Dear Chandan!

      #581 and #536 are two different concepts, in fact very different. 581 is actually about clean a large garbage dump in the center of the slums and converting it into a football ground for all those slum kids and handing it over to the whole community to take care of it but the main purpose was to pick up a lot and alot of trash causing pollution and resulting in a lot of diseases, While 536 was an amazing charity project for the school kids by providing them with a playground after converting an uneven land into more of an even area. I must say that 536 had done a great job but deviated from the actual purpose of cleaning the plastic or non-decomposible trash and rather focussed on making the plot more even and helping the charity school have its own small play area.

    Hello sir,
    First of all we thank Freelancer.com for encouraging such a great work. We have taken the challenge of clean activities in front of a renowned college in the city and in the populated areas. Where around 2000-2500 students studied and many people lived in the neighborhood. Where we noticed a large amount of wastewater and straw waste. For this the common people and the students were disrupted due to the difficulty of the movement and the environment was severely polluted. We cleaned up the waste and abstinence from 4 members of the "Clean Team Bangladesh" group.
    Our general public and students have been watching this program and we encourage them to clean up and prevent environmental pollution. As a result, the people got good response.
    At the end of the clean operation, the principal and some other teachers planted some environmentally friendly trees.
    After getting all the cooperation, we will continue to do this program in a big way. Because we love cleanliness. #515
