From Amateur to Accomplished, Photographers Get a “Shot” at Greatness


Moms, Dads, and everyone love photos of their kids. Whether you are a professional with a monster expensive DSLR camera, or just an occasional shooter with a smaller pocket point and shoot, I’ll bet you have at least a couple of proud shots that you love to show off. Well now Energizer wants to reward you for those shots with a chance to have your photo featured in the December Issue of National Geographic magazine in an ad for Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries. And that’s not all…. you can also win a trip on a National Geographic Expedition for two to the Greek Isles!

The Contest: About the 2010 Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest

Do you have a winning shot? Send in your best photos—in categories like Animals/Wildlife, Travel, and Weather—for a chance to win a National Geographic Expeditions trip for two to Greece! The winning photo will also be featured in an Energizer ad in the December issue of National Geographicmagazine.

This year, the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is all about you. Send in your photos, rate contest entries, see how your favorites are doing, and ask award-winning photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson your photography questions.

There’s no question about one thing: To get the best shot, you need the best equipment. That’s where Energizer comes in. Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA and AAA batteries are the world’s longest lasting batteries in high-tech devices. They last up to eight times longer than Energizer® MAX® in digital cameras (results vary by camera), you can take your mind off your batteries and focus on capturing that winning photo.
