Win the new APS-C Flagship DSLR, K-70, and more - Dec/Jan Giveaway Kickoff

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

Contest Period

The December giveaway will last from December 1 through January 9th (clarification: giveaway ends 00:00:01 GMT-8 on January 10th). This is the final iteration of our "100 years in 100 days" giveaway series!

This giveaway series features 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-8 on December 1st, there are three ways to enter to win each set of three prizes!

Note that even though the raffles will remain open through January 9th, the photo contest will close to submissions on December 31st, as is the norm for our monthly contests.


Winner Announcement & Contest Tracking

The winners for this month's raffles will be announced after January 9th, and the winners of the photo contest will be announced in the third week of January, 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.

Does the grand prize come with a piece of tape to put over the model number so the winner can continue the mystery?

Thanks again, Adam, for having a cool contest!

Clever! I hope whoever wins, does do that.

This is a surely motivating contest! I'm trying to decide between the KP and waiting for the new flagship, but this would surely solve that dilemma.

Well done and well organised. Just in general, the activity in this forum is striking and the tone is always so nice (even when gloriously off-topic). Congratulations to all the forum members for that!

Copy/paste from the former contest without appropriate editing.

Excellent idea to have included the K-New among the prizes.

The K-70 is certainly a great motivation to participate in the photo contest, but looking at the level of quality in the past two months' contests, I would not even come close to competing. Instead of trying and failing miserably, I'll just lean back and enjoy looking at the photos that other members submit

Terrific series of raffles with great prizes. Does giving the new flagship away for the December raffle hint that Adam has a heads-up on an early release date?
