Worldwide Photo Walk 2014 / by Alejandro Mallado

Date Announced for 7th Annual “Worldwide Photo Walk”

Scott Kelby announces the official date his highly anticipated 7th Annual Worldwide Photo WalkTM. 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.

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.

For more information about memberships, visit www.worldwidephotowalk.com, or contact 800-201-7323.

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.
