The first Pentax World Day took place on 19 March 2006 as an initiative of avid Pentaxians from Australia and South Africa. The idea of the PWD is to see the whole world with the eyes of Pentax photogs on one specific day. The first pictures are usually uploaded from Japan and the Philippines, the the Aussies join in afterwards, and as soon as it dawns in Europe The Dutch, Polish, Slovenes, Austrians etc. join in to give way to the Americans as the light travels westwards, the final pictures coming from California's Pacific coast. Currently the PWD gallery is hosted at www.pentaxforums.com.
