Press Release:
The eleventh annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day will be celebrated on Sunday, April 24, 2011. Please join the celebration!

Thousands are busy sharpening their pins preparing for this major global festival. Traditionally held on the last Sunday in April; this year on April 24, 2011.

Anyone, anywhere in the world, who makes a pinhole photograph on Pinhole Day, can scan their image and upload it to the Pinhole day website where it will become part of the premier gallery of lensless photography.

Last year, 3449 participants from 70 countries contributed images to the WPPD 2010 Gallery. Over 150 events - workshops, exhibits, lectures, etc. - were held throughout the world. All coordinated locally by volunteers.

In 2011, Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is the same day as the Easter holiday; for 2011 only, we will accept pinhole photographs taken between April 23 and May 1.

Join the ‘Hole’ world in this joyous celebration of simple photography.

If you'd like to organize an event, such as a workshop, lecture or a photoshoot, or simply a pinhole excursion with friends or interested photographers, or it can be a workshop or exhibit. Check the "Workshop Resources" documents on the Pinhole Day Resource page for ideas.

If you are a teacher, your students can participate in WPPD as a group. Contact events at events@pinholeday.org. Choose "classroom" as the type of event. Your class will be listed as a "group" in the gallery. When your class is selected from the group list, creating a virtual exhibition of your students' work.
