One click on the banner ad and consumers are instantly taken to the main promotion web page where they can learn the details and enter to win this fabulous adventure in the wilds of Africa.

There’s no purchase necessary and the promotion will run from October 15th to December 15th, 2007 with the draw to be held just after Christmas. The lucky winner will then be off on an African Photo Safari in March of 2008.
The company sees this latest in a series of web-based promotions as an integral tactical component of their ongoing strategy to build brand awareness and support their dealer network. Ultimately, the goal is to educate consumers about the tremendous quality and value the PENTAX brand represents in photographic equipment, and help retailers by driving traffic into their stores.
“We are very excited about this promotion. It allows us to entrench PENTAX as the camera of choice for what can easily be described as the most exhilarating photography opportunity on earth, in possibly one of the harshest and demanding environments for a camera. What photographer could resist?” states Glen Sealy, Vice President, Imaging. “We are very well positioned on key web sites leading into the holiday season and we are very confident it will help our retail partners boost sales during this critical time.”
