National Geographic/Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest Until June 30

National Geography/Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest Until June 30

The 3rd annual Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is accepting entries until June 30, 2010. The winning photos in this contest will be featured in the December issue of National Geographic magazine in an ad for Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries. They will also be awarded a National Geographic Expedition for two to the Greek Isles.

Entries are accepted in six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature, travel, people/cultures, weather and action/energy.

National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson will select two finalists in each category. Then, from Aug. 17 through Sept. 15, Americans will be asked to go online and review each of the Category Finalists and vote for their favorite in each category. Once the Category Winners are determined, Richardson will help choose a Grand Prize Winner, to be announced on or about Nov. 4.

Each category winner will receive an EPIC Action Video Cam, a Nikon COOLPIX L110 digital camera, a Litepanels Micro camera light, an Energizer Ultimate Lithium 1AA Handheld flashlight, an Energizer Ultimate Lithium Headlight, an assortment of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries and two books from the National Geographic Collection: Journeys of a Lifetime and National Geographic: The Image Collection.

The Grand Prize Winner will receive all of those items as well as a National Geographic Expedition for two to the Greek Isles, accompanied by a National Geographic expert.
