New photo competition Clik captures biking

Artist Arne Gutman and Joe Lyons, the president of the Whistler Off Road Cycling Association (WORCA), wanted to introduce a photo competition to Crankworx festivities. Only they wanted to put everyone on equal footing. Whether shooters were clicking on pro digital Cannons or old snap and develop film, the Whistler duo wanted the competition to be about the talent behind the lens rather than the lens itself.

Clik, a new 24-hour photo competition was born, clicking off Sunday, July 22 in Whistler. The local competition puts photographers on an equal point and shoot setting by making them all shoot with disposable cameras.

Photographers will have 24 hours and one camera to shoot mountain biking images that capture both imagination and the sport.

Industry professionals including writer Ian Miller, sports-action photographer Bruce Rowles and pro rider Brad Bethune will be the jury evaluating photographers’ works.
