Pentax President's Photo Competition - UK Competition

Details here - Pentax President's Photo Competition | SRS Microsystems

Excerpt from that page :-

"Do you want to win an exclusive Navy Pentax KP with an engraved hot-shoe cover?
How about having an HD PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 Limited thrown is as well?
Well, the President of Ricoh Imaging, Mr Takahashi, will also judge your work himself, and you’ll receive a personalised letter from him!"

Maybe worth looking out for similar competitions in other markets?

Sad that it only for UK shooters. Good luck, that Navy KP is pretty cool!

Now THAT is a terrific promotion!

This is a great opportunity to showcase the excellent images that are possible with Pentax cameras. We've certainly seen plenty of good stuff from our UK members.

Wouldn't it be amusing if the winning entry was shot with a Takumar lens? Hehe.

I wonder if the KP has been commissioned especially for this and similar promotions. I suspect they've made a number of them.

On a related note, I've never dealt with SRS, but came close to making a quick run from London to Watford during a business trip. Just couldn't fit it in my schedule. I think SRS has a stellar reputation.

I wonder if this is part of the Asahi Optical Co. 100 year anniversary. Didn't someone from Ricoh say events or whatever would be regional?

Well done, our Brit friends, get snapping.

Here in Australia the prize may be a lens cap, presented by Paul Hogan. Yahoo Serious, if he's not available.
