Each travel package will be auctioned off with winning bidders traveling to Florida for Super Bowl XXXIX, Indiana for the Indy 500 Auto Race, Botswana for an African safari, France for the Tour de France, Canada for a polar bear expedition and an exploration to India.

"From freezing cold to the blistering heat of the desert, SanDisk Extreme cards provide the dependability and speed that professional photographers require to capture their photos. We are very excited to be a part of this program to recognize the top digital photographers who have inspired others with their work."

Richard Rabinowitz, publisher of American PHOTO, said, "SanDisk is a key supporter of digital photography and their sponsorship of the Extreme Adventure Series is greatly appreciated. This program is a great way for photo enthusiasts to learn directly from the masters of the craft in a hands-on, one-on-one basis. There's no better way to learn than being out in the field in the midst of the action."

Selected photographers include:

Bob Straus, sports photographer, for Super Bowl XXXIX
Adam Jones, fast-action and commercial photographer, for the Indy 500
