The old saying of It’s not the winning, it’s the taking part that counts is certainly appropriate when we talk about the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk
The largest Photographic and Social Event of it’s kind (come to think of it…of any kind) this Record Breaking Event brings together thousands of like-minded people in Cities across the World for a weekend full of Photography, Friendship and Community Spirit and in the process helps to raise much needed Charitable funds.
The fact that there is actually a Competition running with incredible prizes on offer seems almost secondary to what the World Wide Photo Walk brings, but when all is said and done there is a Competition…and Competitions need Winners.
Aside from organising and co-ordinating a Walk, the role of each City Leader is to choose a winning photograph from those who took part; not an easy task when you see the quality of some of the photographs submitted believe me.
However, the winning photograph from the Oxford, UK Scott Kelby Wide Photo Walk 2011 is this great image below taken by Photo Walker Steve Graham…
HUGE Congratulations to Steve who for winning the Oxford, UK walk not only receives a copy of Scott Kelby’s new Best Selling Book Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It [Link], but is also now entered into the Overall World Wide Competition with the chance of winning some incredible Photography related gifts; way to go Steve!!!

In addition to the main World Wide Photo Walk Competition, we also held some extra Competition categories with prizes on offer too, for the Oxford crowd:
- Best Mobile Phone Photograph of the day
- Perfect Timing
- Best Bicycle Photograph; which for those of you who’ve been to Oxford will know is quite appropriate
These extra photographs were uploaded to the Oxford, UK World Wide Photo Walk Flickr page [Link] and I’ll be announcing the winners for each of the extra categories next week.
In the meantime though, Congratulation again to Steve Graham and thanks to everyone who came along, took part and made the day such great fun.
