The Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk on July 18th, Canton version, was a huge success. Everyone who participated could upload 2 images for consideration for the 1 best image we could submit from the Canton walk. That image will be competing for some great prizes against the over 900 cities world wide that walked that day.

It is our great pleasure to announce one of our own members, Eillene Kirk, submitted the image that was chosen to represent Canton in this competition.  Congratulations Eillene.
