This November we will be running a really fun competition with the Olympus Pen. We have selected 6 of our favorite local bloggers to compete:

Celeste from The Reluctant Mom

Angie from Lucky Pony

Natalie from Tails of a Mermaid

Daniel from Bangers and Nash

Matt from Curate this Space

Dylan from Life is Savage


Each blogger will be equipped by mycamera with an Olympus Pen E-P3. The PEN features timeless design, built to perform. With ultra-fast autofocus, full manual control, touch-screen and ten creative art filters.


Each of the bloggers has 10 days to take a photograph depicting or encapsulating a list of 3 set words – “joy” “curious” and “alone”. At the end of the ten days – we will take the camera back and collect the three images on the memory card supplied. Then the images will be uploaded and we’ll ask you (their fans) to vote on your favourites.

mycamera have also asked a few local, top professional photographers to judge the pictures and the winner will be chosen on a point system with votes from the mycamera Facebook fans and judges votes combined. The selected guest judges will be revealed once the images are submitted.

The blogger whose image is chosen as the overall winner will get to keep the camera.

That’s right, guys – the Olympus Pen E-P3 is theirs to keep forever!
