World Pentax Day: July 11-13, 2014
Go out and shoot during this weekend, then upload to the event gallery!
By PF Staff in Giveaways and Events on Jun 22, 2014
The next World Pentax Day (WPD) is actually going to be a three-day World Pentax Weekend and it will take place on Friday thru Sunday, July 11-13th, 2014. This is our fourteenth installment of the WPD and we hope to see as many members as possible partake in the event!
What is World Pentax Day?
The idea behind World Pentax Day is very simple. Each year, the PentaxForums.com staff designates two or three days for the World Pentax Day event. On each of these days, Pentax users have the opportunity to go out and shoot, and then upload their favorite photos to a special collective event gallery. Thus, together, we paint a snapshot of the world through the "eyes" of Pentax cameras! From time to time, we may add a twist to each event, such as a hosting an additional giveaway or making a photo book. Best of all, World Pentax Day is open to everyone! Photos submitted to our gallery must be taken with a Pentax camera and on the day designated as World Pentax Day, however.
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.
How to Upload
Starting on July 11th you will be able to upload up to 5 of your favorite photos to the event gallery, which is linked below.
The link above will go live on the 11th, and the gallery will remain open through the end of July. Once again, only photos taken on 7/11/2014, 7/12/2014, or 7/13/2014 may be uploaded to this gallery.
To learn more about the event, please read our World Pentax Day overview page.
