2019 Photographic Competition

(2020 due to Covid19 in particular and limited and shorthanded racing there were in sufficient photographs for a competition.)

Although done under the name of the “webmasterPYRA” photographs have been provided by the membership.

Please take photographs and forward  them to your webmaster together with any tales that go with them. We run an annual Photo Competition.

By providing photographs you agree to:- retain the copyright, allow members of PYRA to use the photographs for their own use, allow photographs to be used, free of charge, in PYRA publicity, in the PYRA Calendar, and in reports sent to third parties.

The photos are much better if you use your full screen!

Your webmaster is extremely keen that you provide him with photographs for the website. As the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Photographs may be exactly as on your camera or phone or may be cropped, leveled, and enhanced.

Photographs may be sent using any of the following methods:

  1. Use to send large numbers of photographs.  I use it all the time and its free!!
  2. email    webmaster@     “” ( see officers )
  3.  CD/DVD and posted/delivered to Mike Fox, 13 Sandbanks Road, Poole, BH14 8AG.

It is useful if photographs have been cropped, levelled, and enhanced if necessary, using photo editing software.

It helps if you can send your best photographs rather than inundating me with 100s of photographs, although I would rather have 100s than none!

If you wish them to be used for the photographic competition then the higher the resolution the better. It is helpful if you let me know which, if any, of your photographs you wish to enter, and also if you give them a title.
