I took part in a race that is on RacePix.com. How come there are no pictures of me?
RacePix.com cannot guarantee that everyone will get caught on camera during a race. Only photos shared by you, the RacePix.com, community will appear on the site. Different photographers will chose to upload different numbers of photos from a race – some may choose to just share a taster of their work while others may upload hundreds, if not thousands of photos from a race.
Will RacePix.com be covering my race?
RacePix.com is a service to independent photographers to display photos and does not "cover" any events. As the photo content on RacePix.com is 100% user generated it can never be guaranteed that there will or will not be photos shared from a given race. Photos depend on who turns up and decides to share them.
I have photos. How do I get them onto RacePix.com?
A comprehensive guide is available in our "How it works" section.
I have uploaded photos to flickr and tagged them, why aren’t they appearing?
There is a few day delay on photos from new flickr accounts appearing on the site. Once that period has passed and your account has been verified on flickr you won't have any further delays.
Does RacePix.com sell the photos?
RacePix.com has a service called RacePixPro which allows photographers to sell their photos via RacePix.com. The copyright of the images displayed on RacePix.com remains at all times to the photographer who took and supplied the picture. Please see our terms for more details.
How come I can buy some photos and not others?
