The coordinators of the sixth Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day are
busy preparing for this upcoming major global festival. It will be

www.pinholeday.org website where it will become part of this premier
gallery of lenless photography.
Last year, 1815 participants from 49 countries contributed images to
the WPPD 2005 Gallery. Over 100 events - workshops, exhibits,
lectures, etc. - were held throughout the world. Local volunteers

HOW YOU CAN HELP...
- We are looking for help with our publicity efforts in various
countries and regions. These local or regional coordinators would be
part of the team that our Publicity Coordinator, Stefano Piva, is
assembling to spread the word about our sublime yet joyously wacky
annual pinhole exhibit. Mostly this would be emails to publications,
schools, galleries, etc, in your area. If you would like to help
with this effort, please contact publicity at pinholeday.org.
- If you'd like to organize an event, such as a workshop, lecture or
a photo "shoot", you can add it to the events calendar at http://
www.pinholeday.org/events or contact Tom Persinger at
events at pinholeday.org.
- If you are a teacher, your can participate in WPPD a group. To do
this, enter your class's participation as an event at
http://www.pinholeday.org/events/. Choose "classroom" as the type
of event. Your class will be listed as a "group" in the gallery.
When your class is selected from the gallery’s group list, it will
create a virtual exhibit of only your students' work. If you would
like more information about participating, please contact our
Education Coordinator, Rosanne Stutts, at education at pinholeday.org.
- If you are a graphic designer... we're interested in suggestions
for new or alternative logos and other graphics for the website or
pinhole day. Please submit your ideas to Gregg Kemp at
gregg at pinholeday.org.
Another major holiday is in the works for April 30, 2006!
