Pelican Portraits of Protection Contest Immortalizes First Responders


Torrance, CA—With a pedigree of providing protective cases for both photographers and first responders, Pelican Products announced the Pelican Portraits of Protection photo competition. The program brings these two communities together to immortalize real-life heroes who step forward in the face of danger.

Pelican is inviting photographers to post photos of either heroism in action or the faces of heroes on Instagram. They should tag @pelicanprofessional, #PortraitsofProtection and #PelicanPhotoContest for a chance to win. Entries are accepted up until January 14, 2020.

Moreover, each month, Pelican Products will select the most moving and visually interesting photos as winners. The company will feature the winning images on Pelican Products’ social media channels. In addition, the winning photographers and the heroes they 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.”

Furthermore, Portraits of Protection corresponds with Pelican’s charitable giving program: Pelican Protects – Supporting the Heroes Who Protect Us. As such, it aligns with the company’s continued support of first responders and related causes.
