Although we’ve already announced the 10 finalists and the Grand Prize Winner from this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk, there are some other images that, while they didn’t wind up being a finalist or Grand Prize Winner, were still so good that I thought they needed some recognition.

Any of these could have been a finalist (in fact, all of these were in the running and on my short list at one point to make the final cut â” and this gives you an idea of how hard it is making the final decisions. There’s just so many wonderful images).

Congratulations to all these photographers below who created such wonderful images during the walk and are officially receiving an Honorable Mention:

  1. Awesome, the talent of photogs around the world is mind boggling! It’s all in for the love of this great art we enjoy.

  2. Well done to everyone! A wonderful selection from all around the world :D
    A Big Thank You Scott for featuring my photograph of Bath Weir :) I’m absolutely over the moon :D

  3. Wow! Some fantastic photos here! I can see why you had such tough decisions picking the winners.


  4. Brilliant ! So glad you shared these photographs.

  5. I think I just saw at least 6 images that were worthy of the grand prize!

  6. Actually, this whole set was totally awesome! Why didn’t these win?

  7. oh wow… I’m thrilled about being in that list, thanks :)

  8. Congratulations to my walker Tom from Dallas for making the list. He is an excellent photographer and it was an honor to be our walk leader and walk with him.

  9. Some fantastic photos here! I’m thrilled about being in that list, thanks a lot.

  10. Amazing images here. I didn’t submit any of mine, and by the looks of these I’m glad I didn’t.

  11. Thank you Scott for including my image in your Honorable Mentions. Truly an honor. :)

  12. Ahhhhhh… My name is there!!! >.<

    Thank you so much!!!

  13. Thank you so much Scott for selecting my photo as part of your Honorable Mentions.
    I’m so happy and proud. :-)

  14. Congratulations to all the winners and honorable mentions. If I may make a suggestion, it would be to use the last names of these distinguished photographers. Using only the first names of some alongside others whose surnames are listed, seems a bit of a slight.

  15. ,,,Thank You!!!,,, fr ,,,josefino jr,,,PI,,,

  16. My hats off to all these photographers! Stunning vision and work! Gotta host a walk one day!
    Great idea Scott, what a great cause and a cool way to bring shooters together!

  17. 5 photos from the Philippines! Wow! Ang galing!!!

  18. that’s a lot of excellent work!

  19. Kudos to Oliver and Lucil from Cebu, Philippines! astig ang pinoy, mas hasi ang bisaya! :D Congrats guys!

  20. wow!! Those are fantastic!! I don’t know how you can possibly choose winners, Scott….seems like an impossible task….any one of these could have been the grand prize winner!!

  21. Hate to be the Scrooge, but the vast majority of these images are derivative. That doesn’t mean they’re not good. It means I’ve seen the same or better images hundreds of times before. It may be why they are honorable mention. They are technically well done but few show any true originality in composition or thought

  22. I really appreciate that my photo is included in the honorable mentions… millions of people participated in this contest to be one of the honorable mention i can consider that still a winner ;) Galing ng Pinoy!
