World Toy Camera Day is the yearly event that honors the ridiculous photo-taking capacity of outdated toy cameras.

Becky Ramotowski’s idea was inspired by Pinhole Photography Day, because she believed that, quite frankly, there weren’t enough terrible nostalgic pictures on the Internet.

To that end, the creator dedicated an entire website to the 120 and Polaroid film, low-fidelity, blurry picture-spewing cameras. Diana and Holga cameras are flagship mediocre toy cameras that are featured extensively on the website in the hope of urging amateur photographers to share their amazingly poor-quality creations.

To celebrate WTCD, search your children’s room for that run-down Brownie toy camera which has witnessed enough silliness to last it a lifetime and take photos from dawn to dusk so that just maybe, just maybe, you may have one discernible composition to share with the folks at wtcd.org.
