Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Welcome to the Pinhole Day website!

Anyone, anywhere in the world, who makes a pinhole photograph on the last Sunday in April, can scan it and upload it to this website where it will become part of the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day celebration's online gallery.

The next pinhole day is April 25, 2021

Since Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and the Pinhole Day Gallery has always been primarily a virtual event we will continue to observe it on it’s traditional date, the last Sunday in April, this year on the 25th.

Once again, most of the public events and gatherings that introduce new people to the magic of pinhole won’t be happening this year. Check out the events page to find some virtual events and some gatherings that will still occur in some places.

Also, once again we will extend the submission date to include your photograph in this year’s gallery until June 30th. If you can offer developing and safely exchange film, negatives and scans to others in your community, that would help people without those resources to participate.

We hope there will have been some return to normal by Pinhole Day, but in any event, we’ll look forward to seeing what your part of the world looks like through a pinhole on April 25.
