National Geographic Launches Nikon Aspire Sweepstakes

National Geographic and Nikon have teamed up to launch “Nikon Aspire Sweepstakes,”¬†offering the winner an exclusive photo excursion with renowned National Geographic photographer, Annie Griffiths. The lucky winner will also receive the new Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera and a private tutorial from a Nikon product specialist.

The Nikon Aspire Sweepstakes is the latest in a series of programs created by Nikon to inspire users to capture and share their photos and videos. Earlier this year, the first ever “Nikon Festival”¬†challenged budding filmmakers to upload their short-form videos online to The Nikon Festival website, which received more than 590,000 unique visitors and generated more than 1.9 million page views across Nikon’s social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Festival blogs.

“We are excited to launch this new sweepstakes as another vehicle for engaging with photography enthusiasts that have a passion for capturing the world around them with great photography and videos,” said Lisa Baxt, Senior Communications Manager for Nikon Inc. “Working with National Geographic, a brand with a rich history as a trusted source of content, stunning imagery, and education, we hope to continue to encourage aspiring photographers to go out, capture and share their memorable moments every day.”

Contest runs until January 26, 2011. Open to US residents only.
