The World Wide Photo Walk created by Scott Kelby took place in over 73 countries around the world and included Edmonton for the 2nd time. The World Wide Photo Walk is unique in that photographers from around the world meet for a few hours on a specific day, in a city hosting the photo walk and shoot photos while the group walks a planned route of their city. The winning photograph is selected by the walk organizer for their city and then sent in as an entry for the global competition.
Edmonton photographer Darlene Hildebrandt participated in the Edmonton Photo Walk and was selected as the winning photographer this year with her image of the Gibson Block building.
My personal favorite image is Darlene’s unique view of the siding of the Shaw Conference center where the world wide photo walk began. I’ve included it here.
32,600 photographers participated in the 2nd annual World Wide Photo walk this year, so she’s got some stiff competition for the world title.
Good luck Darlene.
