The Third Annual Sky-Dog Award For Equine Photography, 2012!


Here are the winners of our Third Annual Sky-Dog Award for Equine photography. Thanks to everyone who entered... it was a TOUGH choice for our wonderful judges, Lynne Pomeranz, Gregg Albracht and Tony Stromberg! These are all amazing photographs and just the tip of the iceberg of the kind of wonderful entries we had this year. CONGRATULATIONS to our winners and THANK YOU to everyone who entered, I wish everyone could have won but alas we do have to choose. I want everyone to know how close this contest came!

There is a winner's show at the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe that runs  through January, February and March of 2013, with all of the gorgeous winning photos on display (and for sale too!) and we had an opening reception on January 18th at 5pm where we screened Mara LeGrand's wonderful film 'Wild Horses - In Winds of Change' as seen on PBS. There were also book signings by Tony Stromberg  ('Spirit horses' and 'The Forgotten Horses') and Lynne Pomeranz ('Among Wild Horses.') Also on display are beautiful photographs by our judges, Tony, Lynne and Gregg Albracht! Thanks to all who turned out for the event and for our winners who were able to come too. A HUGE thank you to Dorothy and Mary who own the Collected Works Bookstore for their support and kindness (as well as to their employees who help to run the event) and of course a BIG thank you to Gregg and Lynne and Tony. Such wonderful friends to me and the horses! To see photos of the event please scroll down to the bottom of this page!
