Happy World Photography Day!

19. August 2013

"Founding of World Photography Day:

In 2009, Korske Ara, a passionate young photographer from Australia launched the World Photography Day Project. At 21 years old, Korske had the dream to unite local and global communities in a worldwide celebration of photography.

On August 19th 2010, World Photography Day hosted it's first global online gallery. With 270 photographs shared and website visitors from over 100 countries, World Photography Day was born.

Since the launch of the project, we've heard from people that have been celebrating photography on August 19th in their local communities prior to 2009. There's also evidence of an attempt to start a June 1st World Photography Day celebration in 2005.

This history of celebration demonstrates that the passion behind photography is the true foundation of World Photography Day. This website and the project Korske started is igniting and inspiring that existing passion of photographers across the globe."
