Contest Brief

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$10,000!

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.

    Hello, what is the deadline to post a proposal?

    This question arises because the rules say that the contest expires on April 11, but in the information of the publication show that only 6 days are missing, which means that the last proposal must be published before March 26.

    I'll look forward for your answer.

    Hello, is being away from the road a rule or just a recommendation (like wearing gloves etc)? This is because among the sites I have in mind is along a quite dusty gravel road. Can that qualify?

    Hello. I have read the description of the contest and is willing to participate in this. I assume that there will be no limitation of choices to what place we choose to work. bust just for a quick clarification, it can also be the surroundings of our home right? As I believe that when we want to change the world, we have to change what our home offers to us first to make it lead to a better result. Will be looking forward to your response, Thank you.

    This is a wonderful contest and high paid as well. Some might have missed the idea behind it, the contest requires actions not plans or designs, therefor we find all entries so far are rejected. Also I cannot find any need to duplicate entries.

    I am very excited to be participating in this contest. I am the president of a non-profit organization based in Cyprus that's main focus is combating waste and plastic pollution. We host frequent community cleanup events and will be submitting our contest photos for 2 cleanups before the deadline. In 2018 we hosted 10 cleanup events and collected a total of 7 tons of waste before it had a chance to make it's way into the sea. Very happy to see that Freelancer is doing such an initiative. Great work!
