Samsung UK Calling All David Baileys: A Free (Well, On Loan) NX1000 Is Waiting For You

Unlike Olympus which, in its PEN Campaign, gave away free cameras, Samsung is only loaning a NX1000 to all 20 selected UK residents named David Bailey.

Between 1 September 2012 and 31 December 2012 the Promoter shall be running a promotional campaign relating to the Samsung NX1000 model camera. Part of the campaign will involve individuals called David Bailey, some of whom will be selected as part of this Competition, taking photographs on Samsung NX1000 model cameras and uploading the same to a dedicated Samsung Facebook page for the opportunity to receive gifts from Samsung (the “Campaign”).

Why “David Bailey?” He just happens to be an incredibly talented and famous British photographer, and Samsung’s campaign plays on the name: “All David Baileys can take great photos with the right [read, Samsung] camera.”

The Competition is open from 14 September 2012 until 12 Midday (UK Time) on 27 September 2012. So, tomorrow is your last day to enter.

The prize? Why, a loaned Samsung NX1000!???!!!
