Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation announced today that it will again be hosting an online photo contest for horse lovers to celebrate their equine companions.
The contest opens February 1, and entries will be accepted through February 28. Horse enthusiasts are encouraged to submit original photos of horses representing all breeds, backgrounds, and disciplines on Grayson’s website at grayson-jockeyclub.org/default.asp?section=2&area=PHOTOINFO.Finalists will be selected by the Grayson team, and the winning photo will be chosen by votes from the public on Grayson’s Facebook page. The winner will receive a Grayson “swag bag,” and each finalist will also receive a prize. Selected photos submitted to the contest will be shared on Grayson’s social media accounts using the hashtag #ilovehealthyhorses. “We received an enthusiastic response to last year’s photo contest and are looking forward to seeing submissions this year as horse lovers continue to increase awareness of the importance of equine veterinary research and how it leads to healthy horses,” said Jamie Haydon, president of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.
