Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day began on Valentine's Day in 2001 when pinhole photographer, Zernike Au, who manufactures Zero Image pinhole cameras in Hong Kong, sent a somewhat off-topic Happy Valentine’s Day wish on an email discussion list. He said: “Can we have a day for the pinholers from all over the world?” He received plenty of support messages and James Kellar, the moderator of the list and Gregg Kemp, who hosted the list on his Pinhole Visions website formed a team from around the world to handle publicity, general policies and support for the event. Ten weeks later on April 29, 2001 the first Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day took place with submissions from 291 participants from 24 countries.
