Hey there, Happy World Photography day to you. This is the day to rejoice in your emotions, stories and moments through the picture. What words can not describe, a picture does that in an effortless manner, however, since you are reading this blog, here is our modest attempt to explain to you the significance of world photography day and the theme of this year.
The Significance of 19th August in the realm of photography:
Just like a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or any other historical event, 19th August is meant to celebrate the ever-so-young spirit of artistic expression through photography. The portal of worldphotography.com conducts various photography competitions, hashtag campaigns and week-long events to spark and unify photographers all around the globe.
Photography is modern-day time travelling. Whenever an event is captured behind the lens, it captures that moment itself and gives the viewers the privilege to re-live it whenever they want. From landmark speeches to the personal moments of a person’s life, photography is an inseparable part of our lives, the best part being, that photography has long existed before the digital revolution and the mass access of cameras to the general public and photographers alike.
The theme of World Photography Day 2022:
Every year the portal of world photography hosts a competition to keep the spirit alive of photography through various themes. The theme of this year’s photography day is Pandemic Lockdown through the lens.
There could be no more relevant theme than the one chosen this year considering the majority of our lives being spent under lockdown due to the pandemic. While the entries are still live and close soon, you can always post your taken pictures on the theme on our portal in case you miss out on the competition. We are always excited to see our driven photographers and the pictures they capture from their lenses.
Our Message for World Photography day 2022:
Being a photography portal ourselves, it is our duty to share our message with you for this year’s photography day. Drum rolls!!!!!!
Find comfort in the pace of your growth: While pandemic is the sole focus of this year’s photography day, no matter how cliche it may sound, we would keep on repeating that your mental health matters and hence, your peace. Be proud of surviving this global catastrophe and living the photographer dream that you have been living. Be proud of your passion and how you are still connected to photography, which is truly remarkable.
In case anyone has not said it to you yet: “Find comfort in the pace of your growth”. Growth is growth and your only focus should be on improvising, even if it is only a single per cent change, it testifies that you have been evolving into a better being. Till the time you are not comfortable with your pace of growth and appreciative of the journey you have covered so far, you would not be able to rejoice in the essence of this day. So take some time out, revisit your first portrait and then the one you have clicked recently. In case no one else has said it, let us say it: Happy World Photography day to the best Photographer in the world (which is you!).
