World Pentax Day: February 23-24, 2013

go out and shoot during this weekend! · 01-23-2013 · By PF Staff in Pentax Events
World Pentax Day: February 23-24, 2013

The next World Pentax Day (WPD) is actually going to be a World Pentax Weekend and it will take place on Saturday and Sunday, February 23rd thru February 24th, 2013.  This is our thirteenth installment of the WPD and we hope to see as many members as possible partake in the event!

If you've never participated before, World Pentax Day is an event open to everyone in which you simply go out and shoot, and then post your favorite photos in the special event gallery.  Thus, as community we will create a snapshot of what the world looked like during that day.

We encourage you to get together with your photo friends or local photo club and use this day as an excuse to go out and put your camera to good use, especially if this will be your first WPD.

Pentax M 50mm F1.7

We will also be giving away some nice manual Pentax lenses to three lucky particpants of WPD (winners will be drawn randomly)!

The rules of the event are simple! The photos you upload must:

  • Be taken with a Pentax camera (or a rebadged clone)
  • Be taken on February 23rd or 24th, 2013 in your timezone

Starting on February 23rd you will be able to upload up to 5 of your favorite photos to the event gallery, which is linked below.

Upload to the World Pentax Day Gallery

The link above will go live on the 23rd, and the gallery will remain open through March 12th.  Once again, only photos taken on 2/23/2013 or 2/24/2013 may be uploaded to this gallery.

To learn more about the event, please read our World Pentax Day overview page.

Adam [Delete] Mar 3rd, 2013 12:38PM

Unfortunately not, this is limited to 2/23 and 2/24 only!

polmar [Delete] Mar 3rd, 2013 7:27AM

Can I upload a photo that was taken on friday? I was sick the whole weekend and didn't even get out of bed :(

chesebert [Delete] Feb 23rd, 2013 5:11PM

June 2012 WPD - I was thinking the same thing. I was really looking forward to the book.

Any Idaho Pentaxians are welcome to join up with MHP Martin Herceg Photography at 11am Saturday in Downtown Boise at Blue Sky Bagels to get started. 208-409-6361 for more info. Rain or shine thanks to great Pentax weather resistant gear!

Adam [Delete] Feb 22nd, 2013 3:03PM

Uploads open on 2/23 and close after 2 weeks, or a little more in this case: the gallery closes on March 12th.

JFN [Delete] Feb 19th, 2013 4:28AM

When is the final upload deadline? (For us film shooters)

crewl1 [Delete] Feb 11th, 2013 11:37AM

If anyone plans to be in the Los Angeles area on this weekend, join us for a Pentax group meet up and photo walk. More info at the California Users social group.

Good timing, I'm planning a canoe trip down the Whanganui River that weekend so must get something!
Did you ever see the film Deliverance?

Fatdaz [Delete] Feb 9th, 2013 4:43PM

Looking forward to taking part, This will be my first WPD, looking forward to it.

junototoro [Delete] Jan 30th, 2013 4:49PM

Calling Sydneysiders!

John McGee [Delete] Jan 24th, 2013 4:41AM

Excellent idea. I have no plans for these dates so will now go and see something locally that I have never visited before (for example the local bird sanctuary).

elloboloco44 [Delete] Jan 24th, 2013 1:59AM

J'espère pouvoir envoyer quelques images des Pyrénées ces jours là ! Bons shoots à tous !

drivingback [Delete] Jan 24th, 2013 12:33AM

So what happened to WPD for June 23, 2012? It seems to have been forgotten. No book was created and not even an announcement of the highest rated photos. This February edition might suffer the same fate.

OrchidJulie [Delete] Jan 23rd, 2013 7:25PM

Nuts. I have to work both of those days... maybe I can sneak a few shots during lunch or something...

GUB [Delete] Jan 23rd, 2013 7:16PM

Great idea. I will probably be doing what I am doing now -- tending my NZ farm. This is a great opportunity to celebrate the day to day things we do that define us as Kiwis using our photo skills to our best.

Photos-by-Chas [Delete] Jan 23rd, 2013 7:11PM

I really like the WPD being a weekend, as ray said, gives more time and opportunity for photos. I am looking forward to doing this!

rayallen [Delete] Jan 23rd, 2013 4:25PM

A World Pentax Weekend is even better than a World Pentax Day. Great idea with more shooting opportunities.

bobell69 [Delete] Jan 23rd, 2013 2:51PM

Perfect., that day I'm on a trip to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary near Vancouver. Hope to have some good bird shots.
