Photography is a passion of mine, one that I don’t get to work on as often as I’d like. I’ve written before about how much I dreamed of becoming a National Geographic photographer but that wasn’t in the stars for me.
But wait. All hope is not totally lost. I have a chance at getting my photography published by National Geographic after all!
Energizer and its Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are teaming up again with the National Geographic Society for the fourth annual Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest, giving photographers the dream opportunity to see their photo appear in an ad in the acclaimed pages of National Geographic magazine and – for the first time – winning their choice of three inspiring trips at different locations across the globe. Sign me up!
Photo enthusiasts must enter their best shots in the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest. There are 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. Hurry though – you only have until June 30th! So get to work and let your creativity flow.
I for one am definitely entering. Getting published would be a dream come true. And I wouldn’t mind taking a dream vacation either.
To where, you ask? The Grand Prize winner of the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest gets to play a role in selecting what part of the world’s beauty they want to enjoy – the three options include 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.
To Enter – Describe a photo you’d like to submit into the contest.
