Date Announced for 7th Annual “Worldwide PhotoWalk”
Scott Kelby announces the official date his highly anticipated 7th Annual Worldwide
Photo Walk™. The world’s largest photo walk will take place in over 1,200 cities on
October 11, 2014. The Worldwide Photo Walk is the world’s largest global and social photography
event, and has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk
back in 2007. Last year alone, over 30,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill
levels took to the streets to explore their corner of the world through photography.
The concept of a walk is simple. Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over
the world. Interested participants sign up on the official website, meet at the
designated locations – downtown areas, zoos, business parks – and spend about two
hours socializing, capturing images and sharing amongst like-minded individuals.
After the walk, groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to continue with
photo sharing and networking.
In addition to enjoying a day of photography, participants will also have the option
of uploading their favorite picture to the Photo Walk contest for a chance to win a
one-year subscription to KelbyOne.com, along with many more amazing prizes,
including a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists selected by Scott Kelby.
While only one image can be submitted to the contest, participants are highly
encouraged to share as many images as they’d like through our official Photo Walk
group on Flickr at www.flickr.com/groups/wwpw2014. Flickr is one of many valued
sponsors to partner with this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk.
There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required. All an interested
participant has to do is visit www.worldwidephotowalk.com, locate their city and
complete the free sign up. There is also an application to complete if potential
participants would like to become Walk Leaders and host a walk in their city.
The event that is hailed as a “social phenomenon” is now taking registration for
walks around the world. Upon registration, participants are encouraged to help
support this year’s initiative to “Walk with a Purpose” by donating one dollar to the
Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya.
Additionally, participants can also connect socially before, during and after the
event using #WWPW2014 hash tag on social media channels.
