Red Bull Photography and 500px have joined forces to organise the largest social photography event of the year – the 500px Red Bull Photography Global Photo Walk. It's kicking off on September 17 and you can find all the details and participating cities here.
To celebrate, here are ten shots from last year that will make you want to travel the world – and take awesome photos.
Window into Lausanne
A photo of green shuttered windows in Lausanne from last year. There are Global Walk events in dozens of cities all around the world. Get the full list here.
Skateboarding in Kuala Lumpur
The opportunities are endless for street photographers in Malaysia's capital. The theme of this year’s walk is Action and Adventure. So put on your walking, running, cycling, or hiking shoes and capture the energy, motion, excitement, and movement of this city and its people.
Spires of Shanghai
Shanghai is China's most populous city. It's also a city with an incredible skyline. Get your camera and get shooting.
There is something almost surreal about this shot of Kuwait City skyline, like it belongs in sci-fi movie. Recreate or find your own view. Details on the Kuwait Global Walk can be found on Facebook.
Prague has a bit of a reputation as a party town for hedonistic holidaymakers but for any photographers interested in architecture the city is a goldmine for the imagination.
The Dutch city is best known for its liberal attitudes to illicit pleasures. But one of the simplest is simply to wander through the city, absorbing the atmosphere and ambiance.
Seeking Sydney’s other landmarks
When it comes to famous Sydney landmarks, there's one in particular that gets all the glory. And it's a special photographer indeed who can get a new angle on the Opera House. But venture further afield, and you'll find a feast of opportunities to capture.
Mountain views in Innsbruck
Photos always look great with mountains in them. Add colourful buildings and people. Well, then you're definitely onto something. The Global Walk in this picturesque Austrian mountain town takes place on September 17.
New perspective on Hong Kong
Taken by 500px's very own founder Ev Tchebotarev, this is one of the more unusual views of the Hong Kong city skyline. Nice shot.
Cinque Terre at dusk
Is this the most picturesque coastal village ever? If not, Cinque Terre is certainly up there. It's a photographer's delight.
