Worldwide Photo Walk in Boac: Signup will close on Sept. 16!

The Scott Kelby Annual Worldwide Photowalk comes to the Heart of the Philippines!!!

Marinduque photographers, from amateurs to professionals, now have a chance to get together and shoot the scenes in the capital town of Boac, as part of the global photofest that started four years ago.

Bring any digital camera, any brand, any type. No age limit, no gender preference.

A route for the photo walk with a starting point and ending point will be planned which will last about two hours. A Flickr group shall be set up for the walkers to share their photos with one another. Photos uploaded to Flickr aren’t entered into the Photo Walk contest, but it’s a good way for everyone to share what they captured during the Photo Walk.

After the walkers who want to enter the contest have submitted their single best image from your local Walk, the winning image shall be chosen! The winner will receive Scott Kelby’s latest bestselling book — Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It — and will also be in the running for the Grand Prize!

The signup will close on September 16. There are 40 more slots, so feel free to invite friends and family! Walk Organizer is Dan Pagulayan who may be contacted at the same link above.

There are close to 700 photowalks worldwide and 35 are located in the Philippines.
