If you want to share some pictures the day of the walk, we have set up a Flickr Group page that you can join. It’s a great way to see images from around the world doing the same thing you are for the photo walk. To join the group, click on the following link:
Keep in mind: the photos uploaded to Flickr ARE NOT entered into the Photo Walk contest, but it’s a good way for everyone to share what they captured during the Photo Walk. After the walkers who want to enter the contest have submitted their single best image from your local Walk, the leader of the walk gets to pick the winning image! The winner will receive a digital copy of one of Scott Kelby’s books, and will also be in the running for the Grand Prize!
Q. How do we submit our best photo to the contest?
A. Once the day of the walk arrives (but not before), when you log into your account at WorldwidePhotoWalk.com and go to your walk page, you’ll see a box where you can upload your best photo. The suggested dimensions are 1000px on the longest side at 72dpi, and the maximum file size is 1MB.
Once your image has uploaded, you’ll see it on screen and be able to confirm that you’ve uploaded the correct image. If you change your mind and want to submit a different image, you will have until the cutoff date (October 27 at 12:00 noon ET) to upload a new image. After that, no changes can be made.
Q. Can we submit more than one image to the contest? What if I want to share more photos from the walk?
A. Only one image can be submitted to the contest here on the Worldwide Photo Walk site. But if you want to share more images, you can share them on Flickr! You can find the official Sixth Annual Worldwide Photo Walk group right here. Your walk leader may have also set up a Flickr group just for your walk, so check with them for info on that.
So to be clear, here’s the simple breakdown of all this:

What’s a Kelby Walk??
Scott Kelby Hosts 7th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk
Event Hailed as the Largest Global Social Event for Photographers
On Saturday, October 11, 2014, photographers will gather in cities across the globe to capture a slice of life through their eyes during the 7th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. It’s the world’s largest global social photography event in the history of photography itself. Photographers of all walks of life and skill levels gather together, on the same day to socialize, learn new tips from each other, and explore their corner of the world through photography. Last year over 1300 walks took place in countries like the Philippines, Iran, India, Great Britan and the United States.
The Worldwide Photowalk was founded by Scott Kelby, president of Kelby One and a #1 bestselling photography and technology book author. He leads a walk each year in a different city and credits the success and popularity of the event to the social aspect of photography. “Photography is usually viewed as a solitary activity, but the truth of the matter is that people love to shoot together, compare notes and just have fun with photography.”
The best part is it’s free. Just go to the Worldwide Photo Walk site, find a walk near you, and join in on the fun.
This year, we the Worldwide Photo Walk is attempting to step up its charity efforts for the Springs of Hope Kenya orphanage in Africa. In previous years, proceeds from T-Shirt sales were donated to the orphanage to help in their mission. This year, Scott Kelby is asking walkers and walk leaders alike to consider a dollar donation. 100% of the proceeds will go to the orphanage – at a very critical time for them.
The connections people make at the event, doesn’t end there. You’ll find the photos and experiences shared all over social media sites like Twitter under the #wwpw2014 hashtag, and Facebook.
Participants are also eligible to win prizes from the Worldwide Photo Walk’s sponsors if their photo is chosen as the best photo of the day by their walk leader. Each winning walk photo is then entered into a global competition where Scott Kelby picks the single “best photo” of the event along with 10 runners-up.
Scott Kelby’s 7th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk is sponsored by Canon, Kelby One, KelbyOne LIVE, Adobe, B&H, Wacom, Manfrotto, Tamron, Peachpit, and PhotoWalkPro.
