Hi everyone,

This year, Scott Kelby's 5th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk will be held on Saturday, October 13th. At this time, there are almost 1000 cities with over 14,000 participants around the world joining in on the fun.

If you would like to participate, simply create a free personal account on the Worldwide Photo Walk site and sign up to join one of the photo walks in your area. There are no costs at all to participate.

Here are the registered Scott Kelby World Wide photo walks with spaces available in the Metro Vancouver and surrounding areas:

1. Chinatown with Kana Yamashita, 2pm to 4pm (FULL)

2. Ladner Village with Francis Dorsemaine, 10am to 12pm

3. Chilliwack Nature Reserve with Leona Isaak, 10am to 12pm

4. Historic Gastown with Adam Schellenberg and Barry J Brady, 5pm to 7pm.

After you sign up, here's what happens: on October 13th, you show up at the designated meeting place for the walk you signed up for, and enjoy your walk with others and take photos.

If you wish to participate in the photo contest and try to win one of the fantastic prizes, you simply choose your single best photo from your walk and upload to the Worldwide Photo Walk site before Oct 22nd. You can also participate in the People's Choice award by adding your vote on all the fantastic images later in November.

Whether or not you wish to participate in the contest, do sign up for the Photo Walk site and join in. It's a fantastic event.

I'm monitoring the available walks in our area and will update this post with more information as we get closer to the Oct 13th date.

Trish :)

[Edit: added Barry J. Brady's second photowalk with Adam Schellenberg; noted that Kana's photo walk in Chinatown is FULL]

Too bad! I'm signed in for the 'GasTown' one.
Until next time.

Thought I'd sign up for the Gastown walk, but on clicking I'd go, an application form for US citizens pops up and prevents me from adding my name. There is no alternate application form for Canadians visible. So, can I just bypass that application and join the group on Saturday? Wendy

That's really strange. None of that happened when I joined! You should try again. I'm sure you have to be signed up to participate. I just checked and there is still one opening so hurry!

Thanks, Angela, but I again gave it a whirl and still had to go through a registration with the Walk website. But just did that and now am registered to join the walk as the last participant. See you there and thank you again for the comment.

Now, I have received two emails stating that I am on the waiting list for the Gastown walk?
Yet, when I checked there was on spot available. Very confusing indeed.
