First Responders to be Immortalized Through Pelican Products’ ‘Portraits of Protection’

TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Photo Competition Challenges Photographers to Provide “Images of Heroism” for a Chance to Win Pelican™ Gear

With a long history of providing protective cases for both photographers and first responders, Pelican Products today announced its Portraits of Protection photo competition. This program brings these two communities together to immortalize heroes who’ve stepped forward in the face of danger.

Pelican invites photographers to submit photos of either heroism in action or the faces of heroes, and post on Instagram, tagging @pelicanprofessional, #PortraitsofProtection, and #PelicanPhotoContest for a chance to win. Each month, the most moving and visually interesting photos will be selected as winners and featured on Pelican Products’ social media channels. The winning photographers and heroes photographed will each receive their choice of $500 in Pelican gear.

“At Pelican, we recognize our products are put in critical situations with first responders that require them to perform every time. There is a sense of responsibility that goes into every product we make,” said Lyndon Faulkner, CEO of Pelican Products. “Our hope is that we receive images from these skilled photographers that serve as a daily reminder to our team of the responsibility they accept every time they walk through the door, and to honor these real-life heroes.”

Portraits of Protection corresponds with Pelican’s charitable giving program, “PELICAN PROTECTS – Supporting the Heroes Who Protect Us,” in alignment with its continued support of first responders and related causes.

Portraits of Protection contest details are available online here and entries will be accepted now through January 14, 20201.
