Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo walk® is back!

Each year photographers and enthusiasts around the world get out their cameras and meet up at a designated location in their town to walk around and take photographs, socialize, make new friends, win prizes, and be a part of a great cause during this walk! In the past we have met up in October. But this year we decided it would be neat to see the world from a different perspective! So, grab your camera and join us August, 13th!

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a social photography event where photographers get together (usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town) to walk around, shoot photos, and have fun with other photographers, while raising money for a good cause. After the walk, participants have the opportunity to submit their best photo into a contest.

We are so excited to be holding this years event on Saturday, August 13th, 2022! This will be our first ever August walk and we can’t wait to see the difference in how each city looks this time of year. Please keep in mind all individual city walks will be designated by the walk leader for the time of their choosing based on any local venue opening hours or the type of walk they are hoping to achieve. 

No! It is free to participate! However, some walks may take place at a location that requires an admission fee (think zoo, park, etc.). As always we are taking donations to help support the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. 100% of your donation goes directly to the orphanage and makes a huge difference to the amazing youth at the Springs of Hope Orphanage.

We are so thankful for those of you that take the initiative to lead a walk! This event would not be the success that it is without the volunteers who organize and scout locations for the walkers. To become a walk leader simply click here and complete an application. Once the application has been submitted, you will receive an email with instructions for setting up your walk. 

Yes, of course! There are many larger cities that would definitely benefit from having multiple walks. We do suggest that before you start a walk you double check to make sure that you are choosing either a different time of day or location as any existing walks. This will prevent any competition between walks and give our walkers a variety of options.

Our 1st step is to get our leaders on board and get a good selection of walks up and running for you, our walkers, to select. Once we feel we have enough to get started the “Find a Walk” tab will show up in the navigation bar at the top of the page.

  1. Then you can simply select “Find a Walk”;
  2. Then enter your city, state, or zip code to find a walk near you
  3. Click “search map”.
  4. A list of walks will populate under the map.
  5. Select the walk you want to join.
  6. A new page will load; click the green “Join Walk” button on the right side of the page just below the map.

Why yes, yes there is! Everyone that registers and participates in a walk is eligible to enter to win some amazing prizes from our industry related sponsors. To find out what those prizes are check back here often, as we will post those as soon as they are confirmed. But, we can promise they will be great! 

In order for all walkers to have the same opportunities to capture images during the walk, the following rules must be followed:

  1. You may only submit one photo
  2. Collages aren’t allowed, as they are technically more than one photo. But, the following editing is allowed (but not required):
    1. Contrast & saturation adjustments.
    2. Color to B&W transitions.
    3. Removal of distracting elements.
    4. Creation of HDR & Panoramas.
    5. Infrared
    6. Use of Plug-ins such as ON1, Boris FX, etc.
    7. Adding watermarks.
  3. Photos must be taken during the walk (not before or after)

Absolutely not! The contest is just a fun addition to the walk that allows us to pay it forward to our walkers for participating in this event that allows us to give so generously to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya.

Yes! Of course yes! Not only can you enter as a leader but we have created an entirely separate contest submission category just for the leaders—to compete against other leaders! This way your odds of winning and being noticed are even greater.
