Astro James Lugo, from the Cebu City, Central Visayas- Philippines Photo Walk, who actually received the most votes for his image (above).

We had incorrectly identified the “People’s Choice Award Winner” yesterday as an image from a London, UK walk, and the error was totally 100% ours (just one of the many missteps we’ve had this year – more on all that soon), and of course, we feel terrible for both parties: Nicolas who took a great image and was announced as the winner, and Astro who was the actual winner this year, so we’re going to present prizes to both photographers (instead of just one), but the official People’s Choice Award for 2015 is Astro’s image seen above.

As you might imagine, we’re terribly upset about how this all played out, and my humble apologies to Astro James Lugo Lugo for the mix-up on our part, and to Nicolas as well. At the same time I want to offer my hearty congratulations to Astro for his wonderful capture — one that was chosen 2015 People’s Choice Award by photo walkers around the world. Well done, Sir.

All my best,

…Nicolas, from the London, United Kingdom (outside Natwest bank) Photo Walk, who received the most votes for his image (above) titled “London is watching you.”

My congratulations to Nicolas for capturing such an intriguing image, and also a big thanks to everybody who participated in the official “People’s Choice” voting this year. :-)

Lot of great images again this year, and we still have the Leader’s competition coming. :)

Hope you all have a great weekend (I’m shooting the Bucs/Cowboys game on Sunday, and then I’m off to Philadelphia for my seminar there on Monday. Hope I’ll meet you there!).

Best,

Yesterday I announced the 10 finalists and the Grand Prize Winner from this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk, but there are some other images that, while they didn’t wind up winning a prize, were still so good that I thought they needed some special recognition, so each year I do a “Honorable Mention” post here to celebrate this images totally worth celebrating.

By the way — you could make a case for any of these to have been chosen as a finalist (in fact, all of these images were in the running and on my short list at one point which gives you an idea of how hard it is making the final decisions. There’s just so many amazing images).

(more…)

Today’s the day! (it’s a week later than we had planned — we had hundreds of leaders who hadn’t picked winners yet, so we had to go through the process of picking them ourselves, and naming local winners). But at 12:00 noon New York Time today I’ll be revealing the best of the best — the 10 finalists and the Grand Prize winner.

In the meantime, here’s a link to an easy-to-use worldwide time zone calculator.

I hope you’ll stop back by then and join me in celebrating the work of these talented photographers from around the world.

See you then,

-Scott
