Andy Spliethof, the Leader of the Medford, Oregon Photo Walk. There were so many good photos, it was really hard to choose one winner, but I found myself coming back to this image again and again. Its composition, color and energy really come together to make a fun, captivating image. I posted the other Leader photos in an Album over at my Google+ page that were in the running right up to the end and I thought they deserved some recognition, too. Here's the link.  Congratulations to Andy, and to all the leaders who submitted such great images for our first Leaders Competition.


Hi Gang: I have really good news, and even better news. First, the good news: (1) Through sales of the official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirts, this year once again we raised just over $7,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. How cool is that!!!! Now, the even better news: (2) We're not done. Rob Jones, of Towner Jones Photography (the wonderful, big-hearted guy who coordinates our whole t-shirt store) really wants us to hit our goal of raising $10,000 for the children this year, and here's his plan: For every Official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirt you buy before the end of November, Rob (and Towner Jones Photography) will kick in an ADDITIONAL $5 per shirt to the Orphanage. You have to love a guy with that kind of heart and compassion (Rob, you SO rock!!!!!). Here's the link to the Official t-shirt store. If…

To see the nine runner's up, chosen by your votes, visit the official site: My hearty congratulations to Eli, and all this year's People's Choice Runner's Up. :) -Scott P.S. I hope to have details on the Leader's Competition later today. Sorry for the delay. 

On Friday I announced the winner and Honorable Mentions, but this year once again today I’m going to give my personal favorites in a bunch of different categories. Although these didn’t make the final cut, all of these were in the running at one point or another, and I felt they were so great that they deserved some recognition as well. I think these images, and the one’s you saw on Friday, are actually even better than they first appear because: The photographers weren’t able to choose the location (it was chosen for them). Or the time of day (also chosen for them). They had to shoot in whatever lighting conditions at that time They couldn’t go back later (or earlier) to shoot in better light. They were only able to shoot for two hours. Compare that to most any other photo competition, where…
