DuPont Protection Technologies announces the launch of the second annual DuPont Tyvek Dirty Work Photo Contest. The online contest runs today through Sept. 30, 2012, and is open to industrial workers throughout North America.

Entrants should submit original photos of themselves wearing a DuPont™ Tyvek garment after completing their “dirty work.” Entries will be judged on a wide range of criteria from the use of the garment, creativity, safety and how well the DuPont Tyvek garments are portrayed in the photos. The contest features a grand prize, first and second place prizes and a monthly random draw for qualified entries.

“Every day, millions of workers throughout North America get themselves dirty as they work on some of industry’s messiest jobs, particularly in oil and gas, environment and automotive,” said Dave Kee, North America marketing manager, Industrial Protective Apparel - DuPont Protection Technologies. “This is our tribute to the many people who use DuPont Tyvek protective apparel to keep safe and clean while doing their jobs.”

The contest showcases the many ways in which workers use DuPont Tyvek garments in their daily jobs. DuPont Tyvek provides an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort and helps protect against hazardous dry particles, aerosols and non-hazardous light liquid splash.
