12 Category Finalists Named in Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest With National Geographic PDF Print E-mail
Written by The National Geographic Society   
08 September 2010

Online Voting to determine Category Winners

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 7 -- Twelve photographers have 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 National Geographic magazine in an ad for Energizerr 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.

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 National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson, who will determine the Grand Prize Winner, to be announced on or about Nov. 4, 2010.

In 2008, Energizer and National Geographic teamed up on the first Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest, bringing together the world's premier resource for photojournalism with the company that makes the world's longest-lasting AA and AAA batteries for digital cameras and other high-tech devices. Three years later, the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is enjoying its best year yet - with a record-breaking number of entries.

"We continue to be amazed at the quality of work that pours in through submissions to the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest," said Jim Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. "Our goal is to encourage everyone to enjoy the experience of capturing moments through photography, and we hope the long-lasting power and reliability of our Energizerr Ultimate Lithium batteries make it a little easier to do just that."

Energizerr Ultimate Lithium batteries are proven to last up to 8x longer* in digital cameras and up to 2x longer** in flash units, as well as offering more power* for GPS devices, LED flashlights and handheld games. In addition to delivering long-lasting power, the batteries are 33 percent lighter than alkaline batteries, have a 15-year storage life and perform well in extreme temperatures from -40 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degrees to 60 degrees Celsius), making them ideal for both professional and amateur photographers on the go.

Each of the 2010 Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest Category Winners will receive an assortment of Energizerr Ultimate Lithium batteries as part of a prize pack that also includes an EPIC Action Video Cam, Nikon COOLPIX L110 digital camera, Litepanels Micror camera light, Energizerr Ultimater Lithium 1AA Handheld flashlight, Energizerr Ultimater Lithium Headlight and two books from the National Geographic Collection: "Journeys of a Lifetime" and "National Geographic: The Image Collection."

The Grand Prize Winner will receive all of the items listed above as well as a National Geographic Expedition for two to the Greek Isles, accompanied by a National Geographic expert.
