1. Although you may submit entries at any time, the photo must be taken on Pentax Day, April 5th, 2008, between midnight and midnight. Please leave all EXIF information intact. You may submit up to three photos.

2. The photo must be taken with a Pentax camera.

3. The photo should be between 800 and 850 pixels wide or tall, depending on orientation. It may be no larger than one megabyte in size.

Adam, do you take in account the local time zone a member is located in for these time limits?

So if I get on a plane and fly West, I should be able to get more than 24 hours worth of shooting. Wohoo! [high-fives himself cos he's beat the system]

I hope everyone enjoys photos of flight attendants and plane food

Woo hoo .... Us Aussies and NZ'ers will have to wait for the rest of the world to catch up for uploading though ... wonder if the gallery will be open for uploading for our timezones.

Putting a calendar note in my phone to remind me of the day.

Will be attending a formal dinner/gathering of Philippine photographers that day... expect to see photos of the "other" camera users in my part of the world! (Since we Pentaxians are always the minority anywhere in the world)
