Win a STAR lens, GR III, and more: 100 Year Giveaway - October - Event Kickoff!

Last year, we gave away three Pentax K-1's. This year, we're going even bigger: I'm happy to announce the first phase of the PentaxForums.com "100 years in 100 days" giveaway and contest series!

Contest Period

The first phase of the event will last from October 1 through October 31st. Subsequent phases will follow in November and December, with different sets of prizes each month, including lenses, cameras, and swag.

This giveaway series will feature rotating prizes in three different categories: "past", "present", and "future", to honor vintage, classic, and next-generation Pentax gear.

How to Enter


Starting at midnight GMT on October 1st, there are three ways to enter to win each set of three prizes!

Prizes



Winner Announcement & Contest Tracking

The winners for this month's raffles will be announced at the beginning of November, and the winners of the photo contest will be announced in the third week of November, per our usual photo contest procedure.

As usual, there are no geographical restrictions on who may enter, but limit one grand prize per household for the duration of the event.


There will be a notice at the top of each forum page so that you can track your raffle progress:

Good luck and have fun! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone active on the forum throughout this event to celebrate this big milestone for Pentax.

See this thread to view other prizes in other months.

Just chatter about the new camera should make many people eligible for the 'raffles'

Thank you @Adam

First, Thank you, Adam a lot for this. This is for me, a lot more exciting than official Pentax campaign on Instagram, lol.

One question, what about starting a Thread?
Is that counted as 1 post? Or 0 Post?

From what I understand:
- Thread is the initial *starting* post.
- Post is a reply to a thread or a reply to a post within a thread.

The first post of a thread is still a post
