Center Valley, PA—Olympus launched the Olympus Gets You Discovered talent contest, where anyone who has purchased and registered an LS-20M device can submit their best video for a chance to win an autographed OMJM John Mayer special edition Martin guitar courtesy of C.F. Martin & Co.
“There are so many talented individuals who love their Olympus products, especially the LS-20M recorder, which caters to musicians and individuals who like to create their own studio-quality videos,” said Amy Leslie, senior marketing and business development manager at Olympus Imaging America. “Whether you enjoy comedy, music, singing, art or dance, this contest will give you the chance to showcase your talent to the world—and win an incredible $4,200 acoustic guitar signed personally by John Mayer.”
Contestants have until December 3, 2011 to submit their best LS-20M video. The five videos with the most number of “likes” on YouTube will advance to the final round; then a panel of expert judges will decide the ultimate winner.
There are no artistic boundaries to what can be submitted, as long as videos abide by the rules, guidelines and standards of Olympus and YouTube. Visit getolympus.com/getdiscovered to access the official contest rules and regulations.
Each week through the end of the submission period, Olympus will showcase the top “Like Leaders” in its gallery at getolympus.com/getdiscovered. The grand-prize winner will receive a signed OMJM John Mayer special edition guitar ($4,199 value for the guitar alone). Second place will win an Olympus Pen E-P3 digital camera ($899.99 value), and the third-place winner will receive an Olympus Pen E-PM1 digital camera ($499.99 value).
The LS-20M recorder is the first Olympus recorder that captures and edits 1080p HD video while recording 24 bit/96 kHz Linear PCM stereo sound. Combined with four optional magic-movie special effects features, it enables users to create home movies that look and sound like professional productions with a device so compact it fits in a pocket. olympusamerica.com
