Oly display in new London Jessops store

Has anyone who had images accepted for this heard anything about when it will happen, or received any proof material with our images on?
Seems a while back that this first kicked off.

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

Funny you ask this.I ment to say I was in the shop in Oxford Street about a week ago and saw no evidence of anyone's pictures.

Probably gone the same way as the lens cloths

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

I sent an email to Oly Press Departrment last week, enquiring about dates, but haven't had a reply. Maybe they're busy with Other Things?

Ah yes, the lens dress! The same with Kerso's competition. All empty promises!

I also read there would be a gallery, of the pics chosen, on the oly facebook page but that has not appeared either as far as I can see.

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

Perhaps the London Jessops store poster is going to be part of the OMD-EM1 launch party and it is all top secret...

It would be nice if all the authors with images in the display were invited up for the OMD EM1 launch with all expenses paid

We have had lots of promises of 'stuff' including the above, and a book but as Stephan says, empty promises.

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

I had a few emails when results were published, asking for high resolution versions of my images. I asked when the presentation of my prize would be, as I would need to see if I could get time off work, they did not reply to the question and I have not heard from them since. I must admit I am beginning to think it was purely an image grab exercise....not happy!!

That is disappointing to hear. As the winner I would have expected Olympus to have kept you updated on when the event and prize presentation would be held.

Maybe Ian can step in and find out what the situation is.

I am sure that Olympus wouldnt stoop that low.

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

As I said, I wonder if all the PR staff are busy with a "new camera" launch? There can't be that many of them?

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store

I'm sure it is due to a lack of organisation and failure in communication rather than anything underhand.

Re: Oly display in new London Jessops store -RESULT

Well I took the opportunity last Friday when I was at the LCE EM1 event in Bristol to try and find out what was happening with the Olympus display. I asked Jeremy Sugars from Oly and he suggested I emailed him about it.
I did this and today heard that he had passed my email onto Mark Thakara (head honch). Well a short while ago I receive an apologetic reply from Mark (too many balls in the air, he said) and also a couple of PDF attachments. This is what is NOW in store and I have converted them to jpegs to show here (hopefully they will appear in the other stoes that are reopening). The first one shows our images whilst the second is more general.
Sorry about the quality but the PDF was lo res.
