What is World Pentax Day?

The idea behind World Pentax Day is very simple.  During each event, 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 on the day(s) designated as World Pentax Day, however.  They must also be taken with a Pentax or Ricoh camera.

Optionally, try to capture a photo that represents your specific city or region.

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 September 6th you will be able to upload up to 5 of your favorite photos to the event gallery, which is linked below.
