World Photo Day
On 19th August photography lovers across the globe will be celebrating World Photo Day. The main aim of World Photo Day is to inspire positive change across the world. Connecting people and raising awareness through the use of photography.
Founded in 2009 by the Australian photographer Korske Ara, the date of the 19th was chosen to celebrate World Photo Day as it is the date that the patent of the daguerreotype (an early method of photography) was purchased by the French government.
From humble beginnings, with just 250 people signing up to participate in 2010, World Photo Day now reaches a global audience of 500 million. Participants have the opportunity to share their photographs and raise awareness of the issues that are important to them and their communities.
