World Wet Plate Day (WWPD) is a web based venue to celebrate the process of wet plate collodion photography. It’s purpose is to showcase contemporary wet plate collodion photography from all over the world.
Photographers and artists may exhibit their work on the WWPD website. These photographs must utilize some form of the wet plate collodion medium (positives, negatives, or prints) and must be made on Wet Plate Day.
A selection of images may be published in the annual WWPD book/catalog.
World Wet Plate Day is an opportunity for collodionists to build a community, educate the public about the process, and speak of its place in the history of photography. Additional meetings, demonstrations, workshops and/or exhibitions allow people throughout the world to experience the process first hand.
