To support World Oceans Month and The Blu’s World Ocean Day Celebration, the Goody Awards announces a photo contest for June 2012 today. To enter, upload a photo of “Marine Water” (Oceans, Lakes, Rivers, Streams, Waterfalls), marine life or marine animals between June 1 – June 30, 2012. Users will vote to decide on the best photo, and the winner will receive a Sony Tablet S.
Post your summer vacation photos of your visits to New England, Nantucket, Cape May, Virginia Beach, Miami, Santa Monica, Hawaii, Great Lakes, Australia’s Coral Reef, Cozumel, or really anywhere there is a natural body of water. Because the ocean is 72% of the earth’s surface, this is a global contest to help raise awareness of this precious resource.
You can enter as many times as you like through June 30, 2012. Starting July 1 – July 12, users will vote to decide who wins the Sony S Tablet. The winner will be announced on Friday, July 13th. http://apps.facebook.com/contestshq/contests/235316
We also encourage you to support The Blu’s World Oceans Day celebration online through their 3D animated and interactive ocean platform on Friday, June 8th. The Blu will be receiving our First Eco Goody Award this month at E3 2012 for their ocean preservation efforts and World Ocean’s Day Celebration, and we will have more news on that presentation soon.
On World Oceans Day, the Big Blu whale, created by Academy Award winner Andy Jones (Avatar), will be seen for the first time, and Ambassador Species sponsored by WildAid and the OceanElders will be available for purchase to support ocean conservation. The Blu is free, but if you buy fish, a portion of the proceeds goes to ocean preservation.

All water is connected into one World Ocean, and you can post photos tied to “natural water,” and marine life all month. The global ocean is the interconnected system of the Earth’s oceanic (or marine) waters. World Oceans Day and World Oceans Month include events and activities to help protect our ocean for the future! Everyone can help ensure that our ocean is protected and conserved for future generations by raising awareness.
Good luck, have fun posting marine photos, and help us raise awareness of World Oceans Month, The Blu and Ocean Preservation. This is a global campaign, and we will ship to wherever you live. To enter, visit our Goody Awards Facebook.
