From Tony Mearman LRPS CPAGB AFIAP
Now celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the Worldwide Photowalk (WWPW) will take place across the world on Saturday 7th October with 430 walks and 3,500 photographers already confirmed. There are 14 walks arranged for England, most of them in the South so having moved North just a year ago, I thought it would be a good idea to arrange a walk for photographers in the Durham area so decided to volunteer my services as a walk leader.
There’s no joining fee to register for the walk but a small donation towards the nominated charity, Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage which feeds, houses and educates young orphans is appreciated.
The 90 minute walk will be organised to include some of the top photo locations around Durham, starting and ending in the Market Place and afterwards we will be having an informal get-together to compare notes and socialise with fellow walkers.
Several photo competitions will be open to photographers who submit images and the winners will receive photo related prizes from our sponsors. I’m hoping members from our team can use their skills and beautiful locations to produce great images and maybe winning a prize or two.
There is a limit of only 50 photographers for each walk so if you are interested, don’t delay and check out the WWPW website for more information and a list of prizes.
The Durham walk is open to the general public and not just for DPS members so please register if you wish to secure a place:
