Professional equine photographers, Susan Sexton and Carien Schippers presided as judges.

Best of Show placings were awarded to:

Congratulations to Dave Boege of Illinois

Over 2600 votes were cast with the People’s Choice Professional going to “Cowboy Affection” by Jill Fleming of Iowa and Amateur to “Shake it Off” by Holly Glasscock of South Carolina. Congratulations!

What the Judges are saying:

“Judging the Professional Division was overwhelming: there were too many excellent images. Those of you who did well there please know that I was humbled being in the presence of such greatness, greatness in the works and in the people who made them. It was an honor.

Everyone should be applauded for their efforts, great and small. Just entering takes some guts. I'm proud to have been a part of this year's contest. Thank you so much to all of you!”

“This contest was a pleasure to judge with many excellent entries showing a wide range of horses, equestrian disciplines and camera skills. Many of the top placing photos were an inspiration to me and will give the pro photographers a run for their money!

The overall quality of work submitted in the amateur division of the contest has steadily improved from year to year, showing good understanding of both the subject as well as the equipment.”

Prize sponsors for the Contest included Think Tank Photo, Fine Print Express, Frame Destination, Edition Boiselle and the Equine Photographers Network.

The 2009 winning images are displayed on the contest website.
