Tally ho all budding photographers! There’s a chance to win terrific prizes and recognition among some of horseracing’s best known faces at this year’s Andoversford Races on Sunday April 5th.
The racecourse has teamed up with Cheltenham Camera Club and Richmond Villages to stage an exhibition of the best images to portray ‘THE HORSE IN OUR LIVES’.
Entry is free, with a closing date of Saturday March 20th, the week after Cheltenham’s best known sporting event – the Festival. Images should capture and celebrate the essence of the horse.
Entries should be uploaded on the link on the Cheltenham Camera Club website: www.cheltenhamcameraclub.co.uk
First prize includes a £100 voucher from London Camera Exchange in the Promenade and lunch for 2 at Andoversford Races, whilst the runner-up wins a £75 voucher to spend at ladies’ fashion retailer Louella in Winchcombe.
The event will be sponsored for the first time by Richmond Villages, provider of prestigious villages for retirement, with villages in Cheltenham and Painswick. Sonia Harte, for Richmond Painswick, commented, ”We’re so pleased to be supporting a new initiative at Andoversford. Many of our residents enjoy the range of equestrian sport around the county, and through this competition, we’ll be able to showcase it and our villages that sit at the centre of the county’s cultural heartbeat. Get snapping, all you photographers!”
“Andoversford Races is a great Cotswold event, so we’re delighted to draw it to the attention of photographers around the county,” commented Peter McNeile, Chairman of the Race committee. “Horses and equine competition are embedded in the Cotswold culture so it will be exciting to see how they are captured on images.”
