About This Walk

Photograph the activities, shops, streets, and color of downtown Chesterton, IN. Start at the European Market with its vendors and people. Branch out to explore the unique shops and street scenes of a small vibrant town. I led this photowalk 3 years ago. Some things have changed and some things remain. We will start out at the Chesterton Art Center with a group photo. We will end up at the Chesterton Art Center for food and fellowship, sponsored by the Chesterton Art Center.

Congratulations to our Chesterton Walk WinnerOctober 20th, 2019

Congratulations to our local winner, Laura Dienes. Her still life was taken in the O’Gara & Wilson Booksellers. Laura’s photo has been forwarded to the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk international contest, where it will be considered for the Grand Prize!

Viewing Submitted Photos – Chesterton Photo WalkOctober 18th, 2019

Dear Walkers,
I asked the Scott Kelby team how we view the photos of our group. Here is the response I received:

Have your walkers log into their accounts, click on YOUR WALK, scroll down a bit and they will see the SUBMISSIONS tab. Click on the SUBMISSIONS tab and the walker will see the winning photo plus all the other entries from your walk. Hope this helps.

I’m still trying to find out how we identify who did each photo, especially the winner. If you had the winning photo, let me know, and I will share that with the group. Congratulations.

Chesterton Photo Walk – Photo ContestOctober 17th, 2019

We had 10 submissions (out of 20 walkers) for our local photo contest. A committee of 3 people (2 from the Chesterton Art Center and myself) chose the local winner. The winner will receive a notice from the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk and will be included in the worldwide contest for the Grand Prizes.

Since I didn’t have the names for the photos, I don’t know who won, but I want to offer my congratulations! Also, thanks to everyone who participated! I’m not sure how we will all be informed about the winners, so stay tuned, and I will let you know when I find out. You are also welcome to comment on our discussion page.

If you wish, you can share some of your photos on social media. Use #wwpw2019 and #wwpwChesterton2019 to identify them. You may share on Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk Facebook group if you want. Duneland Photo Club members may share them on our Facebook group.

I am happy to get feedback from you. Again thanks for participating and congratulations to our group winner!
