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 one winner to submit to the main photo contest. These winners are also known as the "individual walk winners."

Scott Kelby will review all the individual walk winner's photos and pick one Grand Prize Winner of the Walker Photo Contest and ten Finalists.

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 one 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!

Mobile Photography Photo Contest

Pull out your phone or tablet and start snapping! All participants (Walkers and Leaders) will be able to submit one photo taken with a mobile device during their walk to be entered into this contest. Scott Kelby will pick one winner to take home the Mobile Grand Prize.
