We are organizing another photowalk as part of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk on October 11. This year, we're taking our talents to Hagonoy! Here's our photowalk page : http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/hagonoy-central-luzon-philippines/ . All 50 roster slots have been taken, but you may still sign up for the waiting list. Details, itinerary, and updates are posted in the link.
So what exactly is the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk? We'll give you the answer straight from their press release kit :
The Worldwide Photo Walk is the world’s largest global and social photography event, and has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk back in 2007. Last year alone, over 30,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill levels took to the streets to explore their corner of the world through photography.
The concept of a walk is simple. Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Interested participants sign up on the official website, meet at the designated locations – downtown areas, zoos, business parks – and spend about two hours socializing, capturing images and sharing amongst like-minded individuals. After the walk, groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to continue with photo sharing and networking.
In addition to enjoying a day of photography, participants will also have the option of uploading their favorite picture to the Photo Walk contest for a chance to win a one-year subscription to KelbyOne.com, along with many more amazing prizes, including a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists selected by Scott Kelby.
While only one image can be submitted to the contest, participants are highly encouraged to share as many images as they’d like through our official Photo Walk group on Flickr at www.flickr.com/groups/wwpw2014. Flickr is one of many valued sponsors to partner with this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk.
There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required. All an interested participant has to do is visit www.worldwidephotowalk.com, locate their city and complete the free sign up. There is also an application to complete if potential participants would like to become Walk Leaders and host a walk in their city.
The event that is hailed as a “social phenomenon” is now taking registration for walks around the world. Upon registration, participants are encouraged to help support this year’s initiative to “Walk with a Purpose” by donating one dollar to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya.
Additionally, participants can also connect socially before, during and after the event using #WWPW2014 hash tag on social media channels.
We'll see you in Hagonoy on October 11! :)
It's time to go to San Rafael!
Our PhotoMeet for September 2014 is San Rafael's Angel Festival, an annual celebration that happens every September 29th. San Rafael's streets will be filled by children and performers dressed in heavenly angel outfits. The street dance parade starts 9AM at San Rafael Central School, goes to Lico, then turns around and ends up at the San Rafael Sports Complex for the dance showndown. It's a spectacle we'd definitely want to capture with our cameras.
We'll keep you updated of the meet-up point.
See you there! :)
