World Photography Day is celebrated on August 19th. According to Statista, the date commemorates the day in 1839 when the French artist Louis Daguerre applied for the daguerreotype patent. According to statistics, India is the country with the most fans of photography, which accounts for 35% of respondents. Colombia, for example, is also a country that lends itself to good portraits because of its culture, landscapes, and colonial architecture, such as the graffiti in downtown Bogotá.
There are rooms to reward those who take pleasure in this work. The Sony World Photography Awards recently opened registration for the 17th edition. So if you want to take part in the photo competition, you can still register. Your nominees will be judged anonymously by a panel of industry experts.
