Horse photo Edited Press Release

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 March 15. Winners will be announced on April 20th. 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 to sixth places and four honorable mentions and prizes to the top three placing photos in each of the ten categories and a Best of Show award in both the Professional and Amateur divisions. In addition, each of the five judges will be invited to select their top pick from each professional and amateur division and for ten Judge's Merits awards.

Noted photographer Tony Stromberg will once again be judging the Wild Horse Class, a new and popular category that was added in 2012, with 50% of the profits from entries from this category to be donated to a wild horse cause (to be announced). 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.

The 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.
