KEVIN DOWLING WINS GRAND PRIZE IN THE OLYMPUS PEN YOUR STORY CHALLENGE
Contestant’s Winning Creation Shot with the Olympus PEN E-PL1 to be Highlighted at U.S. Open National Tennis Championships
CENTER VALLEY, Pa., August 18, 2010 – Olympus announces that Kevin Dowling’s skating documentary video “Blading” is the Grand Prize Winner* of the PEN your story challenge. In May, Olympus asked the public to propose what they would do with the Olympus PEN® E-PL1 portable camera featuring digital single lens reflex (DSLR) image quality, point-and-shoot simplicity and high-definition (HD) video and $5,000 to bring their creative visions to life. Their videos demonstrate the amazing works of art that are possible with the powerfully simple PEN.
Kevin will receive an all-expense-paid trip for two to New York City to attend the Olympus-sponsored US Open National Tennis Championships. There, a sample of his video will be displayed on the giant video board in the famed Arthur Ashe Stadium before an audience of thousands.
Thank you to everyone who supported this project. It was truly a team effort and everyone should be very proud today!
