UK Ag Equine Programs is looking for original photographs that capture horses in any discipline as well as photos that include horses interacting with people or in a farm landscape setting. Photographs will be submitted online via a Google form.

Entries will be judged by a committee of staff, students and trained photographers from March 1-5.

At the conclusion of the contest’s entry deadline, each division’s top three images will be published on the UK Ag Equine Programs’ Facebook page for a “People’s Choice Award.” Votes for the award will be determined by the number of likes that each image receives by 5 p.m. EST on Friday, March 12.

Prizes will be awarded to category winners of each age division as well as the opportunity to be featured in the program’s monthly newsletter, The Wildcat Canter, and other UK publications.

For more information regarding the rules and how to enter, visit equine.ca.uky.edu. Questions can be directed to equine@uky.edu.
