Join luxury skincare company La Mer’s campaign to save the world’s oceans by entering the La Mer Oceans photography competition – a chance to win an all expenses paid, 12-day photography expedition for two to the U.S. Northwest. Submit an image that captures the majesty of the world’s oceans – whether it’s a photo of the sea, a secluded cove, marine life or even a memorable shell brought back from a vacation.
The contest is open now until July 31 and it is held in collaboration with National Geographic. You can submit up to three photographs at www.nationalgeographic.com/LaMerOceans. The grand prize is a National Geographic Photography Expedition of the northwest seaboard of North America, held under the guidance of a National Geographic photographer. You and a friend or spouse can explore the unspoiled labyrinth of tiny islands, spectacular fjords and abundant wildlife.
Ten semi-finalists will receive $1,000 worth of La Mer products, a National Geographic print and a copy of Brian Skerry’s book, Ocean Soul. Winners will be announced in September 2012.
The contest is part of La Mer’s celebration of World Oceans Day (June 8), held in partnership with Oceana, the world’s largest international ocean advocacy organization. To commemorate the collaboration, which is in its seventh year, La Mer has created a limited-edition 100ml World Oceans Day Crème ($395) in a specially designed ocean-inspired jar. In addition, La Mer will make a $200,000 donation to Oceans in support of its Habitat Protection Campaign, as well as other global initiatives for ocean conservation.
