Prizewinning litter photo

A juice packet on the beach sums up the litter problem. This photo won the competition run by the Wageningen Environmental Platform.

Admittedly, there was a disappointing number of entrants. Seven, to be precise, with fourteen photos between them. But WEP spokesman Roan Lakerveld is satisfied with the result. The winning photo 'shows that litter really is a blot on the landscape', he says. 'It's a good photo technically, and is a creative take on the subject.' The photographer, André Ruoppolo Biozotti, took the picture especially for the competition during a visit to the island of Texel. The WEP competition was part of a week of activities on the theme of litter.
