Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest- Plus Giveaway

And the Winner is: TawndaM

A picture’s worth a thousand words, but thanks to Energizer and National Geographic, a picture’s now also worth a trip of a lifetime. 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.

The program brings together the society dedicated to inspiring people to care about the planet with the company rooted in developing products that offer high performance with more responsibility. Energizer brought the world’s first mercury-free alkaline batteries to market, commercially available since 1991, and now Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries last up to 8x* longer in digital cameras, so you can use up to 8x fewer batteries and create less waste for the planet. A dedication to performance and responsibility is the backbone of the new communication platform at Energizer called now that’s positivenergy™.

“From Energizer® MAX® to Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries to solar-powered flashlights and chargers, we’ve always designed with people and the planet in mind,” said Jim Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “Our goal with the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is to give people the power they need with less impact so they can simply focus on enjoying the beauty around them. now that’s positivenergy™”

This year the 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. For the first time, Energizer and National Geographic are letting the Grand Prize Winner choose their dream trip location – 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.

First, photo enthusiasts must enter their best shots at National Geographic. They can enter a photo by June 30 in each of the six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature/weather, travel/cultures, family/community, arts/music and action/energy. From there, 20-year National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson will review all of the entries and select two finalists in each Category. Then, from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, the public will be asked to go online 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. 8.

“Through the pages of National Geographic, I’ve had the chance to whisk readers off to faraway lands and exotic cultures,” said Richardson. “Now we have the chance to return the favor, letting one person’s image earn them the trip of a lifetime.”

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.

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.

Along with a storage life of 15 years, Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are 33 percent lighter than ordinary alkaline batteries and perform well in extreme temperatures from -40 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 60 degrees Celsius), making them ideal for photographers who are on-the-go.

Entry into the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest begins May 17, 2011, at 12 a.m. ET and ends June 30, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Photos must be submitted online. No print or film submissions will be accepted. Richardson will review the entries based on the following criteria: extent to which photo captures the essence of the theme selected (25 percent); impact and creativity (50 percent); and composition, clarity and technical quality (25 percent).

*Versus Energizer® MAX®. Results vary by device.
