With Sportograf we can offer you a participant photo service that ensures that each and everyone of you will get his/her race pictures. You can choose to just buy a single photo or purchase the so called “Foto-Flat” – a package, which contains all personal pictures and additionally, a selection of the best generic impressions of the event.
Sportograf has always had its finger on the pulse of the time. They were the first supplier on the market to make their photos available exclusively for digital download and 15 years later they still have new ideas to make their products and services even better.
The new selfie search software will be used to assign your photos. The search function was developed by the Sportograf IT department and sorts your pictures by your selfie. They are therefore no longer dependent on perfectly legible bib numbers. It has already been used across the board at events of all kinds this year.
