Video is fun, lots and lots of fun. But sometimes we forget we're still rockin' one of the worlds most poular Photography cameras. If you want to step aside from video and try your hand at some photography contests, here's one I think you'll like. Oh and if you're considered a 'professional' photographer (who makes a majority of their income through selling photos), then you need not apply. It's called the Sony World Photography Awards, but for some reason, in the rules I can't find that it needs to be shot on Sony. Hmm....I could be wrong, but check it out for yourself.
There's also the Energizer Photography Contest for National Geographic too.
About the 2010 Energizer
Ultimate Photo Contest
Do you have a winning shot? Send in your best photos—in categories like Animals/Wildlife, Travel, and Weather—for a chance to win a National Geographic Expeditions trip for two to Greece! The winning photo will also be featured in an Energizer ad in the December issue of National Geographic magazine.
This year, the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest is all about you. Send in your photos, rate contest entries, see how your favorites are doing, and ask award-winning photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson your photography questions.
There's no question about one thing: To get the best shot, you need the best equipment. That's where Energizer comes in. Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA and AAA batteries are the world's longest lasting batteries in high-tech devices. They last up to eight times longer than Energizer® MAX® in digital cameras (results vary by camera), you can take your mind off your batteries and focus on capturing that winning photo.
