OM System have been helping nature lovers capture those split second moments that tell a story, for over 80 years. Now they are challenging you to go outside, find your birds, point, snap and inspire! The prize? None other than an OM-5 camera and a M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS lens and a handy bag to transport them both in.

OM System inspires people to embrace freedom and capture time – a pink sky, a fleeting smile or a bird in flight – by building compact and lightweight camera systems and state-of-the-art lenses to make your outdoor adventures last. Now, they challenge you to inspire the Birda community by taking and sharing pictures of the birds you see.

You don’t need to be a pro bird photographer either – let the birds do all the work and just snap away on your camera or phone. Log a minimum of 5 species with an accompanying photo between 1st Jan – 10th Feb and share the birds you see with the world

We almost forgot to mention, and this is important. You just need to complete the challenge to be added to the prize draw. It’s not about being at the top of the leaderboard – although that does feel nice – it’s about birds, fun and photos; in that order!

Prizes will be attributed via random draw (Terms & Conditions apply).

The prize

An OM-5 Camera, a M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS lens, plus a OM System Everyday Camera Backpack (worth $3268 USD / £ 2599 RRP)
