I am excited to share this awesome contest with you guys! I know how many budding photographers are out there, and this Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is a great way to use those photos you’ve been acquiring! Energizer is teaming up with the National Geographic Society for the fourth annual EnergizerUltimate Photo Contest!
This contest gives photographers the opportunity to see their photo appear in an ad in the pages of National Geographic magazine…but that’s not all! For the first time ever, you have the opportunity to win your choice of a trip to three very different locations all across the globe! How exciting it that?!
The Grand Prize winner of the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest will be able to to select what part of the world’s beauty they want to enjoy – the three choices are an Alaska cruise of the state’s remote wilderness, a Moroccan odyssey spanning the sea to the Sahara or a 12-day journey into the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. I can imagine the thousands of photos I would take at any of those three places…especially on the Alaskan Cruise!
Aspiring photographers merely have to enter their favorite shots at www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium. The deadline is June 30 and you can enter a photo in each of the six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature/weather, travel/cultures, family/community, arts/music and action/energy. Entries will be judged and narrowed down to two finalists per category, then to one winner per category and ultimately to one Grand Prize winner.
I think this program is so exciting and I can’t imagine the squeals of delight that will come from the person who wins the Grand Prize! Only one person will be named the Grand Prize Winner but each of the six Category Winners will receive a prize pack valued at approximately $1,000 that includes an EPIC Action Video Cam, a Nikon digital camera, a Litepanels Micro® camera light, an Energizer®Lithium flashlight, an Energizer®Lithium Headlight, two books from the National Geographic Collection and an assortment of Energizer®Ultimate Lithium batteries!
I also love that Energizer is involved in this contest! Did you know that Energizer brought the world’s first mercury-free alkaline batteries to market in 1991? Energizer® Ultimate Lithiumbatteries last up to 8x longer in digital cameras, which any photographer – professional or amateur – knows that a long battery life is key to a great photo shoot. Whether you’re photographing your kids playing, on camera duty at a party, or doing a professional photo shoot, there’s nothing worst than a battery dying on you! Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are the world’s longest-lasting AA and AAA batteries in high-tech devices. They last up to 8x longer in digital cameras, and up to 2x longer in flash units than Energizer® MAX®, the company’s flagship alkaline brand. The batteries also last longer in portable GPS units and LED flashlights.
A dedication to performance and responsibility is the backbone of the new communication platform at Energizer called now that’s positivenergy™. This program brings together the society dedicated to inspiring people to care about the planet with a company rooted in developing products that offer high performance with more responsibility.

Guess what? Energizer is going to send one of my lucky readers a battery-powered desktop mini digital photo frame powered by two Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AAA batteries!
