I'm going to be leading a photo walk in Oregon City, Oregon, on October 7. We'll be a part of the largest simultaneous gathering of photographers in the world.
The concept of a Photo Walk is simple. Photo Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Walkers meet up at a pre-designated location to spend a few hours socializing, capturing images, and sharing with like-minded people.
At the end of the Photo Walk, most groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food.
In addition to the event, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite picture to our popular Photo Walk contest for a chance to win prizes from industry related sponsors. We will have 1 walker grand prize winner, 1 leader grand prize winner, and 10 finalists to be selected by Scott Kelby himself. Prizes have not been officially announced yet but could contain a camera, software licenses and membership, up to $750 worth of industry gift cards, camera bags & more!
This isn’t just a walk—this is a walk with a cause. While the event is completely free and you are under absolutely no obligation to donate, the event does support The Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates, and empowers young orphans so that they can grow up to not just survive, but succeed. Scott is asking that each person who participates donates to help make a difference in theses children’s lives. Every dollar counts. You can donate here: https://worldwidephotowalk.com/donate/
Regardless of whether you donate or not pre-registration is required, and will allow you to enter the contest after the event.
