Happy Monday, everybody! It’s Worldwide Photo Walk winners week, and here’s our schedule:
Today: Our new Video Category (for video taken during the photo walk).
Tomorrow: The Finalists and Grand Prize Overall Winner of the 2016 Worldwide Photo Walk
Friday: The People’s Choice Award Winner
Next Monday: The Photo Walk Leaders Competition
This is the first year we’ve added this new “Video shot during the photo walk” category, and Canon USA (our sponsor) was gracious enough to make a pretty amazing prize available for the winner of this new category. The Video Category winner receives:
The Canon Video Creator Kit (seen above). The kit includes the new Canon EOS 80D Body; their new 18-135mm lens; a Canon Power Zoom Adapter; RODE VideoMic Go; a 32G SD Card, and all the other goodies (battery, charger, strap, etc.). High-five to Rob Altman of Canon USA for his vision, support, and for helping us launch this new category in such a meaningful way — Canon has been an absolutely AWESOME sponsor!!!
OK, let’s get right to it — we’ll start with the winner, and then I’m going to share a few other videos that, while they didn’t win any prizes, I thought they deserved some attention.
AND THE WINNER IS…RICHIE REYNAN TAN for his video “Camaraderie”
Congratulations to Richie Reynan Tan — that looks like an awesome photo walk! :)
Other videos that, while they didn’t win any prizes, still deserve a mention:
This one is from Christopher Arnold from Stuart, Florida
This one was just so cute! Susie Lee with her video: “Her First Roll of Film.”
From Adam Carter with this video Out Photo Walking 2016. I like this guy (you have to stick with this one — it gets stronger as it goes)
From the Gamcheon Cultural Village PhotoWalk, South Korea Photo Walk, by Carlos Vasquez. It just looks like a fun time! (and isn’t fun just the best thing to have?)
I liked this one from Egypt by Kahled AboBakr— they look like a great group of photographers. :)
OK, last one: This is from the Ft. Worth, Texas Stockyards by Brandi Korte (I actually did a photo walk there once as part of a conference I was speaking at). Great area for a photo walk.
Thanks for letting me share all of these with you; congrats once again to our prize winner Reynan, and a big, big thanks to the 2016 Worldwide Photo Walk Official Sponsor, Canon USA, for making this new video category a reality. :)
See you tomorrow for the big reveal of the 10 Finalists and the overall Grand Prize Winner! Somebody’s getting an amazing camera! :)
All my best,
