Contest Details:

There are two types of contests: a photo contest and a video contest. Walkers can enter the walker photo contest and/or the video contest. Leaders can enter the leader photo contest and/or the video contest. Rules and details are below:

The Walker Photo Contest

Walkers can submit their best photo (one submission only) taken during the walk to their walk leader. The leader will review all entries and pick 1 winner to submit to the main photo contest. These winners are also known as the "individual walk winners."

The main photo contest has two chances to win:

  1. Scott Kelby will review all the individual walk winner’s photos and pick 1 Grand Prize Winner of the Walker Photo Contest and 10 Finalists
  2. But your opinion matters too! So we also ask everyone who participated in the 2017 Worldwide Photowalk to vote on their favorite photo to win the People’s Choice Award. Voting details to come.

NEW! Youth Photo Contest

This contest is new and specifically designed for walkers 16 years or younger. The youth walker may submit their best photo (one submission only) taken during the walk. Scott Kelby will review and pick 1 winner of the Youth Photo Contest.

Video Contest

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

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. One submission only, please!
