WORS Photo Contest

WORS will be starting a Photo Contest for the 2009 Racing Season. The WORS photo contest seeks to reward WORS spectators and participants who capture the WORS experience with high quality photos. For each race, we will award prizes for the Best Photo in five (5) separate categories and an Overall Best Photo. The photo categories will change for each venue, and will be announced at WORS.org and on the Team WORS website, as well as the WORS registration tent on site. Above all, we hope that the photo contest will increase the participation and enjoyment of our many talented WORS photographers.

  • No watermarks: TeamWORS cannot include images that have been watermarked.
  • No damaged number plates: TeamWORS cannot include images that include racers who have modified or damaged their WORS race number plate.
  • Treat each other kind! Never interfere with riders: : TeamWORS cannot include images that have been taken from on the course, or that were taken in such a way that the photographer may have interfered with racers.
Learn more about the Categories. To give greater breadth of coverage for WORS events, some of the photo contest award categories will change throughout the season. For example, "Best Photo from the Kid's Race" may be a category at one event, and "Best Photo of a Racer in the 50+ age group" at another. Whenever a category is announced, suggestions and recommendations for photographers, and examples will be provided at the Team WORS website. Two Categories that are likely to be included at every race are "Best Photo of the Venue" and "Best Photo of racer(s) and Sponsor Banners".? You can also check the photo contest tips on our Flickr account, which will be updated throughout the season.
