Photographers of all skill levels are invited to enter the Energizer photography contest.  There are six categories - animals/wildlife, nature, travel, people/cultures, weather and action/energy - each of which will feature a first prize winner.

If you come out on top of a category, you'll take home a COOLPIX L110 camera, a Litepanels Micro camera light and an assortment of Energizer flashlights, headlights and batteries.  The grand prize winner gets all of that plus a trip for two to the Greek Isles accompanied by a National Geographic expert.

The contest deadline is June 30, and the finalists and winner will be announced November 4.  It's free to enter, and you can submit one photo for each of the categories.  And don't worry about getting trampled by the pros, says National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson.

"You don't have to be an expert or have professional equipment to capture a magnificent shot," says Richardson.  "One of last year's Category Winning photos was shot by a zoo employee on a regular point-and-shoot camera. Great photography is often about being in the right place at the right time and making sure you're prepared to capture the moment when it happens."
