The History Behind World Photography Day

If we track down the beginning of World Photo Day, it has not been long since the celebration got started. An Australian photographer named Korske Ara started the celebration in 2010. He launched a website named World Photo Day and invited photograph submission. On the very first year, the site received 250+ photos taken by the photographers of 100 countries and reached 20,000 people. In only eight years, the day gets celebrated worldwide and almost 3000 photos get submitted on 2016 World Photo Day. When these images were circulated in social media with #WorldPhotoDay, they reached 500 million viewers. These numbers show that within these years, World Photography Day has become a global phenomenon. Now, photographers all over the world celebrate the day with zeal and festivity.

World Photography Day: Why Does it Get Celebrated on 19th August

Though photography got its own day only a few years ago, the history of photos go back a long time. If you are wondering why 19 August out of all days of a calendar year, here is the history. Ara chose August 19 to celebrate World Photo Day because the days marks a historical event. The event was the announcement by the French government that the patent of Daguerreotype process becoming public.

Daguerreotype, the first practical photographic process got invented in 1837 by Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce. The French Academy of Sciences made an announcement about this invention on January 9, 1839. The French government received the patent of this process on 19 August, 1839. On the same day, they announced that the patent is a gift to the world and anyone can use this Daguerreotype process for free. Due to this laudable decision of the French government, Daguerreotype became process open for public use from the beginning. This decision contributed a lot in the development and growth of photography. Therefore, this day is a perfect occasion to celebrate World Photography Day.
