Olympus Launches Pen Your Story Challenge

I just received a nice email asking me to spread the word about Olympus’ new contest, Pen Your Story. You’ll get the ability to win their new PEN E-PL1 and $5,000 to make the creative project you always dreamed of. All you have to do is submit a video proposal to the Olympus YouTube Channel telling them what you want to create with the PEN E-PL1. Watch the video below for a full detailed explanation as well as some inspirational ideas.

Six entrants will be awarded $5,000 and a new Olympus PEN E-PL1 to bring their proposal to life, and one grand prize winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New York to show their work at the US Open. Sound like a fun contest with some fabulous prizes.
