Sony photo contest – shoot a tape, win an A100
Sony Europeâ€™s Recording Media & Energy (RME) division today announced a new LTO-4 photo contest promotion that offers the chance to win one of three digital cameras from Sony â€“ in return for creative pictures of LTO-4 tape cartridges. The competition can be entered by distributors, resellers and end-customers of Sonyâ€™s LTO-4, its highest capacity media.
Sony is asking LTO-4 media channel partners and users to capture the most artistic, abstract or humorous photo of Sonyâ€™s LTO-4 cartridge and upload it to the SonyBiz website to be in with a chance of winning digital camera from Sony. Entries can be made in three easy steps:
* 1) Take a camera and some LTO-4 media
* 2) Be creative and shoot your photo (with LTO-4 media prominent in the picture)
* 3) Enter the contest by uploading your entry here
The designer of the image that judges decide is the most creative will win Sonyâ€™s DSLR-A100K Digital Single Lens Reflex high quality, professional camera. The second prize up for grabs is Sonyâ€™s DSC-T200R 8.1 megapixel camera, with 3.5-inch wide touch screen and a unique ‘Smile Shutter’ for capturing those happy moments. Third prize is Sonyâ€™s DSC-T70B, a slim-line T-Series Cyber-shot camera with 3.0-inch 16:9 wide-screen LCD, and â€˜Smile Shutterâ€™.
The competition is open from 14th January to 29th February 2008, running across Europe in France, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Luxemburg, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Italy and Spain – with more countries to be announced
Sony will judge the entries and winning images will be displayed on www.sonybiz.net/storage-media at the end of March.
Is tape storage an obsolete medium? Is the A100 a discontinued camera? Is this a pretty low cost way to get hundreds of photo ideas for showing a boring product? Hmmm.
