Fancy yourself an eco-inspired photographer? Then send in your best shots to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as your good Earth Day deed. The now-hopefully-less-deadbeat-since-Obama’s-president agency’s looking for inspirational photos for its EPA Earth Day Photo project.

All you have to do is upload your photo onto one of those 3 Flickr groups — people and the environment, the beauty of nature, and wildlife — by April 30. The winner gets whatever fame comes from being featured on the EPA Earth Day site — and the happy knowledge that the photograph could inspire eco-activism in others.

Videographers get their own EPA contest too! Just upload a short video (90 seconds or less) on YouTube and join an Earth Day Video Project group to get in the competition.

For inspiration, check out this video of Russ Roca, the bicycling photographer. This Angeleno lugs all his equipment on his bike and trailer!
