Unfortunately, we are going to have to delay the announcement of the winner of the Worldwide Photo Walk’s Youth Competition (we’re waiting for a final age verification because for some reason MANY, MANY adults entered the youth competition). and our People’s Choice Winner (we’re awaiting the results from ViewBug who ran that part of the competition).

So, because we can’t know for certain if or when either of those is expected today, we’ll do the announcement this coming week. My humble apologies for the delay – our crew has been working day and night to have these ready and they’re nearly as disappointed as you are, but we want to make sure the proper winners are verified before we make the announcements.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. :)

Best,

This is our second year with a “Video shot during the photo walk” category, and Canon USA (our sponsor) has once again come up with an amazing package for the winner of this category. The Video Category winner receives:
