This is a self-organized photo contest, the committees are a few oldies here. So every Pentaxian can participate, including the committee members and Emjay staff.
The contest winners will be purely based on online polls, but the shortlisted ones will be decided by the the panel. Please don't post your photos anywhere before the contest ends, so we can keep the contest anonymous. I'll consolidate all the photos submitted, and post the shortlisted ones under one thread myself.

Good luck to all Pentaxians!

Kudos to Emjay for kindly donating Pentax gear as prizes. :thumbsup:
So those of you who still haven't got a Pentax yet, quickly grab that Pentax camera and enter this contest.
This is a contest that those with even a Pentax kit lens or Pentax point and shoot camera can enter.
With such a broad and all encompassing theme, the photo opportunities are plentiful, so work out what you want to shoot and plan towards getting that prize winning photo.

Kudos to Emjay for sponsoring the prizes. Fengwei, thanks for taking up the responsibilities to organise and co-ordinate this event. Lets hope this will generate even more interests amongst hobbyists over to PENTAX. Looking forward to the photos. A good start to the New Year 2011. ;)

Entries for the contest must be taken on 26 Feb between the aforementioned hours that Fengwei mentioned and can be anywhere in Singapore.
The camera and exposure information and the fact that the photo was taken with a Pentax has to be captured in the photo's exif information at the point of submission.
So if the image has been edited and post processed and resized using any post processing software, THE EXIF INFORMATION MUST REMAIN INTACT. This is something that everyone must adhere to or the entry will be rejected. To ensure the exif info isn't stripped away, then better take the time and effort to learn how to do so.

Shall we go for outing on that date ? I'm sure it will be "very interesting" .....
Although there won't be an official gathering for this outing, you are welcome to form small groups so you can travel to more places in the same day, and capture as many good photos as you want :)

Think this is a very nice gesture from Emjay, and the contest brings the monthly outings to a new level of excitement.
