DuPont wants the dirt on your dirty work, via a photo contest that captures the gritty, grimy, splattered glory of industrial jobs.
The 2012 DuPont Tyvek ”Dirty Work” Photo Contest is recruiting photos of industrial painters and other workers going about their dirty duties clad in Tyvek personal protective wear.
|“We spray fireproofing material on steel,” wrote DuPont’s Tyvek “Dirty Work” 2011 Grand Prize winner. “The mud we spray gets everywhere.” Cash prizes can help winners fund some good clean fun.|
“We want to see you in your dirtiest, grimiest DuPont Tyvek garment during or after your dirty job,” the company says. “Upload your photo, and tell us about what you do and how you get so dirty.”
Coated in Glory
The protective and marine coatings industry is a natural for the contest. Last year’s “Dirty Work” contest winner was a painter, and a team of tank cleaners took second place.

Winners can clean up with a number of cash prizes.
Photos should show all appropriate safety wear and the correct Tyvek garment for the job, DuPont emphasizes. Entrants may submit up to five photos a day. The contest runs through Sept. 30.
