Over 200 cities around the globe were a playground for the walks on September 17 and 18th, 2016, with the most remote photo walk taking place in Antarctica!
The hosts were asked to organize a walk in their city accommodating this years theme: Action and Adventure. We saw biking, breakdance, freestyle soccer, light painting, parkour, skateboarding, wakeboarding, and even skydiving in the final images.
All the photo walkers had the possibility to submit images to the 500px Red Bull Photography Global Photo Walk Mobile Photo Contest.
There were some really great submissions from around the world, with submissions from Malaysia, the UAE, Japan and many other countries, and many different sports and activities were creatively captured by the Global Photo Walk crowd.
A jury of experts from 500px and Red Bull Photography had a really hard job selecting the winning picture with much debate over the final 3 images, which you can see below. Photographer Robert Garo was finally selected for shooting the best picture with his photo of a b-boy in a parking garage, and as a prize received a return trip for 2 to Chicago for the Red Bull Illume Winner Award Ceremony on September 28th, 2016.
