Two months ago I blogged about the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest, which was open to anyone, and with a fabulous Grand Prize of a trip to the Greek Isles plus a feature in an Energizer ad in December's issue of National Geographic. Twelve finalists have been chosen, and Energizer is encouraging everyone to check out their photos at www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium and vote for their favorites!
Votes will be accepted through September 15 -- all you have to do is click on the "Choose" button below your favorite photos. No registration required, it couldn't be easier. The only difficult part will be deciding which photos you like best!
Here's more information about the final round of the contest from Energizer:
Twelve photographers from across the country have just been named Category Finalists in the 2010 Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest with National Geographic. They are now one step closer to their “shot” at greatness—the Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip of a lifetime to the Greek Isles and will see his or her photo appear in the pages of National Geographic magazine in an ad for Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries.
The 2010 Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest, which launched in April, has named two Finalists in each of its six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature, travel, people/cultures, weather and action/energy. Now it’s up to the public to pick the Category Winners. From now through Sept. 15, people can go to www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium to view the gallery of Category Finalist photos and to select their favorite in each category.
From more than 14,000 entries, 12 photos stood out as the best in their respective categories, according to Jim Richardson, National Geographic photographer and judge for the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest. The Finalist who receives the most votes in his or her category will advance to becoming a Category Winner. The six Category Winners will enter a second round of judging by Richardson, who will determine the Grand Prize Winner, to be announced on or about Nov. 4, 2010.
