Worldwide Photo Event in Cody
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 3, 2018
Anyone with a camera and a passion for photography is invited to be part of the world’s largest global social photography event this Saturday in Cody.
The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk in 2007. Last year, more than 24,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill level converged to explore their corners of the world through photography and social community.
All photographers, using any type of cameras including cell phones, are encouraged to join Northwest College Photographic Communications faculty and students to explore the buildings, alleyways and side streets of downtown Cody this weekend. The group will meet at 10 a.m. in front of the Cody Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. Following the event, walkers will go to lunch and discuss photography, the walk and images captured from the morning excursion.
In addition, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite image to the Photowalk contest for a chance to win prizes like a DSLR, gift cards, apps and camera bags. A grand prize winner and 10 finalists will later be selected by Kelby.
The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Search for “NWC Photo Walk,” register at worldwidephotowalk.com and complete the free form. Additionally, participants can connect socially before, during and after the event using the hashtag #WWPW2018 on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
