Last World Pentax Day, we also announced that we would be publishing a book featuring some of our members' favorite photos from that event. We are happy to say that the book is now in final editing stages, and will be available via Blurb.com later this month, so stay tuned! We will also be giving away a few copies of the book to the photographers featured within it.
The goal of World Pentax Day is to create a snapshot of the world through the eyes of Pentax camera users. A World Pentax Day event is held no more than once every season, and we try to vary the dates so that seasons are represented equally across the globe. For each event, our users upload up to five photos taken between between midnight and midnight on World Pentax Day (in their respective timezones) to a collective gallery. Uploads close two weeks after each event, and a permanent record of that day is thus created in the gallery. World Pentax Day is hosted exclusively by PentaxForums.com and endorsed by Pentax in the US and UK.
