Equine Photo Contest for 2020 Wall Calendar

We are taking entries for our 2020 Wall Calendar starting August 15. Deadline: September 15, 2019.

1) Guardians are allowed to enter up to 2 photos. Each photo may include one or more horses, ponies or miniature horses. 2) No other species, or rider, may be in the photo. 3) Photos may be color or black and white. 4) Photos must be submitted via email in jpeg format. 5) Description of the horse and any interesting bio information must accompany the photo. 6) Horse(s) was not previously included in one of our prior calendars between 2012 and 2015. 7) Photos should be in natural settings without alteration other than cropping. 8) All breeds are welcome. 9) No fee to enter.


A panel of non-participating judges will choose the 12 finalists. They will base their decision on the beauty, creativity, composition and impact of the photos. All entries will be submitted to judges anonymously to ensure objectivity of their decisions. The entry that is chosen for the cover will be, in the view of the judges, the “best” entry overall, and will be awarded a prize.

We thank our judges for participating in our contest: Tom West of tomwestartworks.com; Shelby Suelzle, equestrian; Wendy Schmerse, our Treasurer, and Amanda Meyer, our horse sitter and wrangler.

PRIZE FOR COVER PHOTO. Winner of the Calendar Cover has a choice of prizes: AirRide Therapeutic Riding Pad or Black and Purple Breast Collar.
