Official photo contest for January, 2015
By PF Staff in Photo Contests on Jan 2, 2015
What would be a better way to kick off the New Year that to put a brand new camera in the hands of a talented Pentaxian? That's exactly what we're doing in our first monthly photo contest of 2015, which features a Pentax K-50 as the grand prize!
The contest theme is "Best of 2014", so browse through your archives and galleries to find that one photo that really stands out.
The rules and procedures for this photo contest are the same as our prior monthly contests. In a nutshell: anyone can enter, limit one submission per person, and only photos taken with Pentax or Ricoh cameras are allowed. The contest will close to submissions at the end of January.
Good luck and Happy New Year! To learn more about the Pentax K-50, see our in-depth review.

It was the second time that I participated in the monthly photo contest on the PentaxForums and I am delighted that my photo won the contest "Wrapped, Covered, or Packaged". I looked forward to the outcome of the contest and I burst with joy at the news that I had won!
I made this photo at the wedding of a friend in Verona. I was not the official photographer of the wedding but all the same I brought my K10D with me.
