How it works

Easy. Fast. Efficient.



An expert will help you set your PC and the Pica Drive (the hardware provided by Pica you will need to use our system) and will also help you manage the first event you will photograph with Pica.


Athletes will wear a Pica Code

Pica works with the leading services for printing bib numbers. A Pica Code will be printed on each bib thus allowing the automatic recognition and matching of photos to the athlete portrayed.


Take photos and videos of athletes along the race route

Scout the race route for the best locations to take pictures and videos in order to provide a good amount of them to athletes.


Upload your photos and videos

Upload the photos and videos via PC during the race. The Pica software will deal with the automatic recognition, sorting and delivery of photos to the athletes portrayed.


Start selling your photos

Immediately after the race photos and videos are available both on website and app. Athletes can look at them, buy and share them of the main social media.
