Announcing the PF "100 years in 100 days" Celebratory Giveaway & Contest Series

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who submitted giveaway and contest ideas over the course of the past few months! I've drawn a great deal of inspiration from your suggestions, and wanted to unveil a preview of our upcoming giveaway and contest series which will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of Pentax.

The giveaway will be entitled "100 years in 100 days" and will go from October 1st through January 9th, in three phases of roughly one month each. Prizes will be offered from specific categories to honor the evolution of Pentax products: legacy/classic, current, and next-generation gear.

Each month, there will be three ways to enter:
  • There will be a general raffle open to everyone, with one entry per person per month
  • Our official monthly photo contests will have an open theme, and will feature camera/lens prizes for the winners
  • There will be a post-based raffle for the largest prizes; unlike last year, there will be no limits on the number of participants per raffle, and no time-based entry windows
Depending on the level of participation, we may have up to 6 grand prize winners per month, with a minimum of 3.

Grand Prizes

These are subject to change, but below is what we're currently looking to give away. If multiple items are pictured, the winner will be able to choose.

Other Prizes

An assortment of additional prizes will be available to runners-up, such as Pentax Forums T-shirts, account upgrades, eBooks, or the limited edition hotshoe covers, subject to availability.

I'm looking forward to put these prizes on your hands, and hope that our giveaway will echo the spirit of Pentax's own commemorative events!
