Organisational Supporters

We want to thank the following organisations who have supported the development and growth of World Photo Day. Through the provision of funding, coaching, and other resources, they’ve been a huge part of the World Photo Day story.

World Photo Day Knights

Our World Photo Day Knights are the incredible community members that have taken the extra step to support the project through paid membership. Through their contributions, the World Photo Day project has continued on into the global celebration that we see today.

You can become a World Photo Day Knight too!

Founding Team

When you have a big idea (like starting a global photography celebration from nothing), there will always be sceptics that will tell you that it can’t be done. There’s also encouragers that will inspire you to pursue your big idea, giving you the confidence to take it on. Finally, there’s that special group of people that will dive in with you to build it.

Without the input and knowledge of our initial team, World Photo Day wouldn’t be the global celebration that you see today. We want to honour the work done by that team during the early years of World Photo Day.
