Calendar Photo Competition


It might be early in the year but we’re already looking forward to 2017 – so much so that we’re now launching our calendar competition!

Anyone who has a great picture of one of our horses is invited to send in photographs of their chosen equine (in electronic format) for next year’s calendar along with a completed Media consent form to by June 15th 2016.

There’s plenty of time to get a picture which really captures your favourite pony’s personality, and there’s a prize for the best picture submitted. So if you’ve visited one of our sites recently and got a super picture or if you’re a loan carer with some fantastic images of your pony, make sure you get in touch!

This year we are also looking for submissions that fall in to the following categories


  • Life on the Yard
  • Seasons
  • People at Work
  • On Horseback
  • Funny Photos
  • Big and Small
  • Landscapes and Ponies
  • Dressing Up

If you’re successful, you’ll be contacted at the beginning of August. There’s no limit to the number of pictures you can send in, so get snapping and get involved!


  • Photographs entered must be of a Sanctuary horse or pony. Images of Sanctuary animals with their carers and/or other equines would also be gratefully received.
  • Photographs must be of good quality. Please ensure that your camera is set at the highest resolution possible.
  • All Sanctuary staff in photos must be in uniform
  • Photographs may be submitted in colour and black and white formats.
  • Please do not crop your image drastically or reduce it in size before submitting it.
  • Ensure photos have a good clean background
  • Due to the orientation of the calendar, it is best if the image is taken in landscape

Good luck – and if your picture is featured in the calendar, we’ll send you a free calendar of your own. Don’t worry though, even if your photo doesn’t make our calendar, we keep everything on file so may be able to use it, with your permission, in later publicity. Note: Condition of entry is that photos can be used in our communications, they satisfy technical specifications and are copyright Mare and Foal Sanctuary.
