“PENTAX WORLD” GLOBAL SHOOT DAY:

Saturday, April 17, 2010

PRIZES INCLUDE TWO PENTAX CAMERAS

 

GOLDEN,CO (April 8, 2010)...PENTAX Imaging Company has announced plans organized by worldwide Pentaxians for another global photo shoot scheduled for Saturday, April 17, 2010.  Forum members at www.PENTAXforums.com plan to shoot locally on that day and submit images to a central gallery.

As an added twist this year, TWO PENTAX K-x cameras are being given away in celebration of the 1 millionth post on the forum; these will be awarded to the two forum members who have posted the largest number of forum messages between April 8 and the end of the week in which the 1,000,000th post is made.  More information is available here.
