The Walk Leader competition is always one of the hardest to judge
There are so many great entries from so many talented leaders, and this year once again there were so many wonderful entries that it made my job as tough as ever.

Although there’s only one winner, I felt there were some images that were so good that even though they didn’t win a prize, they still deserved to be recognized, so I’m displaying my “Honorable Mentions” first, then we’ll reveal our winner.

  1. Great photos… next year I got to up my game :)

  2. Thank You Scott and KelbyOne for the honor of being selected! It was quite a surprise to see my image revealed after scrolling through the quality photos of honorable mentions.

    This was my 4th year leading a walk and each year I learn what helps to make each walk better. A location and suggested walk route that offers many unique photo opportunities is paramount. As Brooklyn’s Coney Island is testament to that by not only my win, but also a win as a finalist for Saul Addison’s Cyclone image from our walk: https://scottkelby.com/announcing-winners-10th-annual-worldwide-photo-walk/

    The best thing about the walks is the community it creates among the participating photographers, which is what exemplifies what Scott Kelby and KelbyOne is all about. Thank You!

  3. I really proud for obtain a honorable mention, is my first time leading a walk, I can’t believe share space between amazing photos. Congratulations to Ken the winner, felicidades campeon.
