Heads Up: Photo Contest Featuring Pentax K-3 Grand Prize

As a follow-up to the successful giveaway we held in February, PentaxForums.com will soon be hosting a full-blown photo contest featuring a Pentax K-3 as the grand prize, courtesy of B&H Photo.

EDIT: the contest is now live here.

The photo contest will consist of multiple stages, where the first stage will be an open qualification round to determine 64 semi-finalists. We expect the contest to begin in late April, once B&H re-opens after the Passover holiday.

During the first stage of the contest, judges will select up to 48 semi-finalists, while a popular vote will nominate the rest for a total of 64.
There will be very few restrictions during this round:
  • Just submit your best photo, that's it!
  • Can be taken with any camera (non-Pentax is fine)
  • Can be taken at any point in time
  • Any and all post-processing is allowed
  • Must be taken by you
  • Open to members worldwide
I'd like to invite all our members to partake for a chance to win this wonderful camera! 3 runners-up as well as one honorable mention will also receive B&H gift cards.

So, just keep this contest in the back of your head the next time you're out to shoot, or pick a photo from your archives that really stands out. In the first round, it's all about the "wow" factor!

Good luck and stay tuned for more details

Fantastic. One thing I'd like to see is the photo dimension requirement when it is available (provided there is one).

It'll all be hosted here. The official announcement (later this month) will contain all the submission details.
