May 2019 Breyer Photo Show Contest: Mares & Foals
This contest has closed; entries no longer accepted. Thank you.
We are excited to announce our first contest for 2019, Mares & Foals! The MAY contest entries are due by email no later than May 31, 2019 by 5:00pm EDT. They will be judged on equal parts creativity, composition, accuracy, and adherence to the theme. After being carefully reviewed by the judge, the results of the contest will be pinned in each age category 1st through 6th place and published on BreyerHorses.com on or about June 10th, 2019. One prize will be awarded to our first place winner in each age category; the prize is Best of British Foal Set (#9198; ERV $39.99)!
Mares & Foals is our first theme this year and it’s a timely one as we are entering foaling season.
While many foals are birthed in a foaling stall, others in more remote areas are born in the field among a herd. Most mares prefer to give birth alone, and as such, often foal at night or early in the morning. An immediate bond is created, and the mare is very protective of her newborn.
How will you choose to photograph this subject? A scene from a foaling environment? Or the young foal in its early months? Or a combination shot of a foal with its mother? This topic gives you a chance to showcase the subtleties of this wonderful period in a young foal’s life.
Please remember that figures are not required. However, some themes benefit from the addition of them, and the judge will consider the overall scene. If a figure is used, it must be a Breyer figure. All other props and scenery are up to you and your imagination!
