Ricoh holds digital camera photo contest for customers
GR DIGITAL Calendar Contest

Ricoh Co., Ltd., today announced that again this year it will hold a GR DIGITAL Calendar Contest as customer-participation event.

In addition to regular photo contests, Ricoh has held a variety of different customer-participation events, for example, in previous contests customers have been invited to submit photographs for a calendar and to submit photographs and text for use in a special GR DIGITAL catalog.
Again this time, Ricoh hopes to stimulate customer enjoyment of participating in the creation of a special calendar by taking photographs with their GR DIGITAL cameras, while at the same time showing our appreciation to customers.

  • *With a high-performance lens and image-processing algorithm, the GR DIGITAL achieves superior resolution all the way to the edge of the image. Despite its compact body, this digital camera produces image quality that can satisfy both professional and experienced-amateur photographers. (Introduced on October 21, 2005; open price)

An overview of the contest is given below.
