A Call for Entries for Equine Ideal: Winter 2012 Online Photography Contest
All professional and amateur photographers who seek to capture the ideal image of the horse are invited to enter the Online Photography Contest sponsored by the Equine Photographers' Network.
The deadline for entries is February 1st, 2012. Winners will be announced on April 1st. Winners will be recognized on the contest's website, http://www.equinephotocontest.com
Images are to be submitted in a digital format as per guidelines found on the contest's website.
Images will be judged by professional equine photographers based on: impact, equipment expertise, technical/artistic expertise, light and color, subject matter, creativity and suitability.
As the contest sponsor, the Equine Photographers' Network will be awarding ribbons to first through sixth places and four honorable mentions, and prizes to the top three placing photos in each of the ten categories as well as a Best of Show award in both the Professional and Amateur divisions. This contest will also feature two People's Choice Awards, a very popular feature from previous contests where the public is invited to cast their vote for their favorite photo from the professional and amateur divisions.
An exciting new category has been added for 2012. The Wild Horse Class will be judged by noted photographer Tony Stromberg with 50% of the profits from entries from this category to be donated to The Cloud Foundation. We hope that the photos entered in this category will document the beauty and raise awareness of the issues surrounding horses still living in the wild around the world.
