In November 2019, RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of
Asahi Optical Joint Stock Co., the original manufacturer of PENTAX-brand products.
To celebrate this memorial year together with PENTAX users across the globe who have patronized and supported PENTAX-brand
products over the years, we will conduct the PENTAX 100 Celebration Instagram Photo Contest over a three-month period.
This contest isn’t a strict competition by any means; all you have to do for application is upload your photo
to your own Instagram account using designated hashtags.
Share the fun of photography and your enthusiasm of picture-taking with other PENTAX users via the hashtags,
making the memorial year even more memorable.
