Exciting News This Month!

Grab your cameras! It's time to start shooting!

We are pleased to announce a Photo Contest for the customers & fans of KEH Camera!

You've always relied on KEH as a trusted source for your photographic equipment, and now we want to give you the opportunity to show off your craft.  Here at KEH, we stay so busy selling, purchasing and repairing camera gear that we don't always get to see the wonderful images you create.  Therefore, we decided to host a photo contest!

Theme:

With the holidays right around the corner, the theme for the photo contest is family. Relatives, friends, pets and everything in between.  Whatever you define as family.  Show us the meaningful moments of the ones you love.  This is your chance to be creative!

Prize:

The winner of the Photo Contest will receive a $200 KEH Camera gift certificate.

Contest Rules:

* One entry per person.

* Photo must be taken approximately within the last 1-2 years.

* Must be 18 years of age or older to enter.

* Photo must be appropriate for posting on a public website.

* Photographer retains the copyright to their image, but grants KEH Camera permission to post winning photograph (with credit) on one or more of the following: KEH Camera Blog, Newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Flickr accounts.  Nature of post(s) will only be to announce winner & winning photograph.

* Photographers, when appropriate, please make sure you obtain permission from persons depicted in photograph prior to submitting an entry.
