Worldwide Photo Walkâ„¢ Stuff
After Friday’s announcement of the official date of the 6th Annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walkâ„¢ (It’s Saturday, Oct 5th in case you were wondering), I had a number of questions, so I thought I cover a few of the most frequent ones here today. Here goes:
Q. How do we know if a particular walk is full?
A. There’s a counter on each city’s page and it shows how many spots are left. If you see “0” Openings (as seen above), that walk is full. but you can still sign-up but you’ll be put on a waiting list. If a spot opens up (somebody cancels in advance), they’re filled in order by when you signed up (each year, I’ve been able to add a few people to my local walk from my waiting list, so it’s worth getting on the list).
Q. Is yours in Rome, Italy full?
A. It is. I think it was the idea that ice cream might be involved at the end of the walk that helped it fill in. Well, it sure made my decision easy. ;-)
Q. Can we order the t-shirts yet?
A. Yup — here’s the link. That’s the graphic shown above (designed by our own Felix Nelson), and the shirt is available in different colors (white, tan, blue, and so on). Plus, there’s a special “leaders” shirt as well. 100% of the profits from the sale of the t-shirts go the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya, so even if you don’t need the shirt, they definitely need the support. My thanks in advance for helping out the kids (and thanks to Rob Jones of Towner Jones Photography in Virginia who not only came up with the idea, but runs the t-shirt store like a boss).
Q. I had trouble Registering for a walk, signing up to be a leader (insert your own Web problem here). Is it working now?
A. When we updated to the latest version of WordPress, it broke a few things that we didn’t know about until Friday, but I think we’ve got them fixed now. Plus, we got crushed with traffic on Friday, so things should be better today all around. Thanks for your patience with all that.
Q. Is there someplace we can see last year’s finalists and winner?
A. Sure. I did a blog post with each of the finalists and Grand Prize winner, and why I chose each one. Here’s the link (really some amazing shots).
OK, that’s it for today. Lots more to share soon (including new sponsors and more prizes). Whoo hoo!
