Announcing Energizer's 4th Annual Ultimate Photo Contest (and a giveaway for you!)



I'm in awe of this photo. To me, it looks like something straight out of Harry Potter, but it's actually a perfectly ordinary Muggle, I mean human being, riding out into a storm. Actually, I shouldn't say ordinary; you can see the grit and determination oozing out of every pixel. He's like the Energizer Bunny, he keeps going!

Apparently National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson thinks so too, because he named this photo, by Bernardo Medina, the 2009 Grand Prize Winner in the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest. The 4th annual contest has just started, and entries are being accepted until June 30, so I'm sure we'll be seeing some extraordinary photos soon. The Grand Prize Winner will get the dream opportunity of seeing their photo appear in an Energizer ad in the pages of National Geographic magazine. Also, for the first time ever, the winner will get a choice of three amazing adventure trips across the globe. I can't wait to see what photos people will submit!




Here's more information about the contest:
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.

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
www.nationalgeographic.com/lithium. 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.


Win an Energizer Gift Pack
Even if you don't enter the Ultimate Photo Contest, you can still be a winner with Energizer. They have offered me a digital photo frame to give away on my blog! One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will win a battery-powered desktop mini digital photo frame powered by two Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AAA batteries.

I love both travel and photography (and I LOVE looking at the entries for this contest!), so I would definitely enter the Travel category. And I have always dreamt of going to Morocco, so that's the trip I'd choose. Wow...maybe I need to enter a photo in this contest! :)

Thanks!
