ANNOUNCING THE WINNER OF THE 2017 WORLDWIDE PHOTO WALK LEADER COMPETITION
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.
