Horse Photo Contest

Did you just take the perfect picture of your horse? While you’re probably inclined to share it on Instagram, or on your Facebook feed, you might consider entering it in a contest instead. There are many horse photo contests online. Your random photos might work for some, but some will have rules regarding the theme or composition, amongst other requirements. Here’s a look at just some photo contests you can enter your horse photos in.

Savvy Horse Systems
Every year, Savvy Horse Systems has a photo contest. This contest is open to residents of Canada and the U.S.. You’ll need to read the rules, because there are some specifics they ask for. You may also enter digital photos and print photos. You’ll also be responsible for getting written consent from any people in the photograph. Photos from the contest will be used on pages of the Savvy Horse Systems planner and winners receive other prizes too.

Horse-Canada
< href="https://horse-canada.com/photocontest/">Horse Canada magazine has an annual photo contest with divisions for adults and kids. This year’s theme is ‘Freedom’. The prizes are great, with a $2,000 shopping spree as first place in the open division. The prize for the kid’s division is a little more modest. This contest is open to Canadians only. You can enter as many photos as you like. You must be an amateur photographer. Deadline is November 1, 2018.

Horse Today Monthly Photo Contest
The deadline for Horse Today’s monthly photo contest is the 5th of each month. Readers then have until the 15th to vote on their favorite photo. You can send up to three digital or print photos per month in each contest. Submissions are voted on by readers on the magazine’s Facebook album. Look for ‘Current Contest’. Your photo may end up on a page in the magazine.

Equine-Site Monthly Photo Contest
Another monthly photo contest is offered by Equine-Site. Read the rules carefully, because if you live outside of the U.S. your photo might be used as a cover photo, but they many not award you a prize. Like many photos, you’ll also need to follow the rules as to subject matter and size.

I-Shot-It
The photo site I Shot It holds many contests. There are plenty of subjects you can take pictures of for these, and there is a specific category for horse photos. There is a $2USD entry fee that is added to the basic $500 first prize for the best picture. The judges and many of the competitors are professionals. They accept photos taken with any type of camera—including your cellphone, but from the looks of the entries and winners posted, you’ll probably have a better chance with a DSLR and some solid photography skills.

Breyer
Of course if you can’t get a photo of a real horse, you might be able to get the perfect shot of a Breyer horse. Breyer has several photos contests every year. Check the Breyer website for a list of the photo contest themes and all the rules.

Equine Photographers Network
If you are looking for inspiration, tips on taking great horse photos, resources and contests, check out the Equine Photographers Network. They hold frequent contests, hosted on their EPN Facebook page.

Equestrian Entries
Equestrian Entries is a service for those showing, but they also have an ongoing photo contest. The prize, awarded at the end of the year is a gift certificate for entries in a show or event. You can check out their contest by heading over to their EqEntries Facebook page.
