About World Photography Day:

But what is World Photography day? This is a day dedicated to, you guessed it right, taking photos. It’s an annual global celebration that pays homage to the art, science, history, and craft of photography. Not just a single day, this event often spans a whole week, during which various events and activities are organised to honour the captivating world of photography.

One of the intriguing aspects of World Photography Day is its thematic approach. Each year, a specific theme is chosen, inspiring photographers from around the world to capture and share their best images related to that theme. This years theme is ‘Landscapes’. This collective effort results in a diverse and remarkable display of creativity, perspectives, and visual storytelling.
