It seems that there are several competitions going on at Pentax to win a KS-1.

Mostly they seem to be only available to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram users.
As somebody who is trying to avoid these insidious forms of networking, why are the competitions not open to everybody? (See Pentax Portal.)
I have received a general marketing email inviting me to win a KS-1 for Christmas, but the email link to enter the competition that they provided is wrong!

Sadly, this is becoming more common these days and it's not just Pentax.

I don't use any of the above either.

Advertisers cater for the majority who do though.

If I find that's the case Ill not be bothered to enter either, you are only inundated with e-mails or phone call after .

I enter a lot of competitions and have had some good prizes, a 2000 bicycle, a 285 photography course, a 180 Camera bag, a 170 leather bag, a 150 compact camera recently. I have never had an unwanted phone call and I run two email accounts, one mainly for competitions so I know where the emails are coming from.
I am still not getting involved with that Facetwit rubbish though!
Pentax give out an email address for their comp. as KS1mas@escapapdepr.com which is obviously not right!

I think it should be KS1mas@escapadepr.com they sent a revised email. Escapade being Ricoh/Pentax's PR company.
