More than £7,500 photography kit up for grabs at Birmingham store

Amateur and professional photographers will get the chance to win more than £7,500 worth of equipment just by visiting a Birmingham retailer.

The opportunity to scoop the package of prizes for “photographers at any level” will be available at the Autumn In-store Open Days. Attendees on the day must register to enter into the prize draw.

The free one-day Wex Photographic event will take place at Calumet’s Birmingham store on Hagley Road on Thursday, October 12.

The prizes feature a Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR with 24-105mm lens, a Sony Alpha A6300 CSC with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens, a Fujifilm X100F compact camera with accessories, a Rotolight NEO II, a Polaroid Original OneStep2 camera andan Epson SureColour SC-P800 A2 printer and much more.

With something on offer for photographers and filmmakers at all skill levels, the Open Day will also feature new gear and product demos from leading brands and technical advice from the experts.

Emma van Deventer, Events Manager of Wex Photographic, said “The Open Days are a real highlight for those who are serious about their photography. They provide customers with an amazing opportunity to learn more about the industry and improve their knowledge. Not to mention we’ll also have a range of discounts which will only be available on the day for those shopping in store.

“We are hugely excited to announce this prize draw, which is being run across all the store Open Days. We carefully selected the prizes and are confident they will attract photographers at any level, who are keen to reach the next level of their art.”

Open Days have been running in other Calumet stores across the country which have been very successful so far.

The dates for the next Open Days are as follows:
