Contest Details:

We have three contests this year! In addition to the usual contests: The Walker Photo Contest for just walkers to enter and The Leader Photo Contest for just the Leaders to enter, we are also having our 1st Annual Video Contest! But don’t worry; you don’t have to choose. You can enter into both the video and photo contest. Rules and details are below:

  • The Walker Photo Contest
    Walkers can submit their best photo (one photo submission only!) from the walk to be entered into the photo contest. Each walk Leader will pick an Individual Location Winner. In addition to receiving a 1-Year KelbyOne Membership, the Individual Walk Winner's photo will be submitted into the main photo contest. Scott Kelby will review all these winning photos and pick a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists to receive prizes.
  • People’s Choice
    One winner will be picked by the participants of World Wide Photo Walk 2016 to receive the People’s Choice Award.
  • Video Contest - NEW
    All participants (Walkers and Leaders) will be able to submit a short video (5 minutes or less) taken during their walk to be entered into the contest. Scott Kelby will pick 1 winner to take home the Grand Prize. Only one video submission per person.
  • Leader Photo Contest
    Every walk Leader will receive a 1-Year KelbyOne Membership as a thank you for hosting the walk. Additionally, each Leader will have the opportunity to submit one of their walk shots into a separate Leader Photo Contest. One Grand Prize winner will be picked by Scott Kelby.
