Contest: Win a Pure Spanish Horse
Offering a beautiful Pure Spanish Horse as a Grand Prize, The Foundation for the PRE announced the launch of a talent contest this month with cash prizes for three categories, Photography, Original Artwork and Essays. Each of three categories will be separated into four age groups; Fifteen years Old and Under, Sixteen Through Twenty-One, Adult Amateur and Adult Professional.
The Foundation will award substantial cash prizes in each category and a chance to have your entry appear in the P.R.E. magazine, an internationally distributed publication directed at fans of the Pure Spanish Horse. The Photography portion will have two sub-categories, The PRE Horse or The PRE Horse with a Human. The Essay may be on one of three topics; My Love of the PRE, Interacting with the PRE, or Wishing for a PRE.
Entrants may submit multiple entries but each entry must be sent with a separate $20.00 entry fee, unless the entrant is a member of The Foundation. Fees are waived for members and minor children of members. All entries must be submitted with entry form found on the website: http://www.prehorse.org. A three-member panel will judge all entries. Their decisions are final and not subject to review. No entries will be returned and all entries become part of The Foundationís Museum, to be used as The Foundation sees fit.
The Essay Contest will have one winner per age group. The Grand Prize of a Pure Spanish Horse will be awarded to one of these winners as well as a cash prize of $250 in each division, as determined by the Panel of Judges. All work must be original, and stated as such on the entry.
The Photography Contest: Prizes will be awarded as follows; first place cash prize of $250, and a second prize of $150.00 and a ribbon in each of the two categories named above, in each division. One of these pictures will be on the front cover of the next edition of the PRE magazine. All winning photographs will appear in the PRE publication. All work must be original and stated as such on the entry form. The two category winners will compete for a Grand Prize of $500.
