Win a Limited Lens: November Daily Prize Giveaway

We're very happy to announce the official November, 2014 Giveaway, which features daily prizes in addition to two Limited lenses as grand prizes which will be awarded to three lucky participants at the end of the month.   The giveaway starts at midnight CDT on November 1st- just after Halloween.

The way the giveaway works is simple: you get one point for every forum post you make.  You gain an additional point for each member that Likes your posts each day.  For a chance to win a Limited lens, you simply need to be a top-10 forum poster on at least one out of the 30 days in November.

At the end of each day, the member with the highest number of points will be our daily winner.  That member will get to pick out one of our 30 daily prizes.  In addition, the top 10 point holders will each receive a raffle entry for the grand prize drawing. 

There are also two ways to gain bonus raffle entries.  If you are in the top 10 scorers on at least 3 different days, your total number or raffle entries will be increased by 20% (rounded up).  Furthermore, one of the daily prizes is the option to receive additional raffle entries.

Grand Prizes

The grand prizes are the SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited ("Greatest Pentax Lens of All Time" per our Lens Tournament), HD Pentax-DA 15mm F4 Limited ("Greatest Pentax Wide-Angle").  The winners will be drawn via a raffle. 

We will also be giving away a SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 lens to the overall top scorer as a guaranteed prize.  All lenses are brand new!

3 32 Gb Sandisk Ultra SDHC Card
3 Giotto's Large Rocket Blower
6 Unlimited Attachments Account Upgrade

Grand Prize Drawing

At the end of the month, the Limited lens grand prize winners will be drawn randomly based on the raffle entry counts.  You can keep track of how many raffle tickets you have on the giveaway standings page.
