TechRepublic's camera phone challenge: Sports

Del Mar Race Track

A couple of weeks ago, we encouraged the TechRepublic community to submit sports photos that they had taken with a camera phone.

The winning photo, as decided by the TR editorial staff, was taken by TR member outlawmom with a BlackBerry Curve of the Del Mar Race Track from the Turf Club.


Sonja Thompson has worked for TechRepublic since October of 1999. She is currently a Senior Editor and the host of the Smartphones and Tablets blogs.


I hope that none of these are a "snap" of a video taken at a sports event. There is a law pertaining to "NO PICTURES,VIDEO OR OTHER TYPE OF RECORDING MAY BE TAKEN AND RE-DISPLAYED WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT......". I hope you haven't opened a "bag of worms" so to speak.


The place and event are just up the road from where I am. In this day and age, though, they would be foolish to squash any publicity they get, including and specially TR, seeing as how they spend (millions) locally to promote it, with local media willingly in tow. Who knows. Maybe the money extends to here.
