Photo Walk Update (and Prize News)
Just a few quick updates:
Peachpit Press Rocks!
First, I want to give some big love to the people who helped me launch this whole Photo Walk in the first place, and who have become one of the key forces behind this entire event, Peachpit Press (link). They are the publishers of all my books, and they’re providing each Photo Walk leader with a free copy of my soon-to-be-released book, “The Digital Photography Book, Volume 3″ and they’re providing a copy to the winner of each local walk around the world. As things stand now, they’ll be shipping more than 2,000 free copies of the book all around the world, and I just can’t thank them enough for their gracious support, and for their overall commitment to just make great books. It’s an honor to have them so involved in this event, and to have them as my publishing partner. Thanks Nancy, Scott, Sara, Ted, and everyone at Peachpit and Pearson Education worldwide.
More great Prizes from our New Sponsor: Think Tank Photo
I’m just tickled to welcome Think Tank Photo (the people who make the best camera bags on earth) as an official sponsor, and they’re not only giving an Airport Security rolling bag (the same bag I use) to the Grand Prize winner, but each of the 10 finalists will get a Think Tank Modular Belt System. Whoo Hoo!!!
Now ’bout a Drobo, too!
The folks over at DataRobotics have also sweetened the Grand Prize pool because now the Grand Prize winner will also get a Drobo (the automated storage solution I use for my own photo library).
The Prize List is Insane!
The list of finalist prizes, and the Grand Prize list (shown above) is getting longer and longer. Just take 10 seconds and look above at what the Grand Prize winner gets. It’s an incredible list! Here’s the link to see what the finalists get as well.
Coming up on 20,000 walkers!
We now have nearly 20,000 photographers signed up for walks in over 900 cities around the world. Wanna come with us? Here’s where to sign up for the walk nearest you.
That’s it for now, folks. Hope you’ll be walking with us next month on Saturday the 18th.
