Aachen’s popular equestrian sports photography competition is open for entries from professional photographers.
The Silver Camera award, for photographs taken between June 15, 2015, and May 8, 2016, will be presented at the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen, which runs from July 8 to July 17 this year.
In addition to the “Silver Camera” trophy, the winner will receive a prize money of €2500. The second placegetter will receive €1000, with €500 going to the third placegetter.
The competition is being run by Aachen’s organisers, ALRV (Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein) in cooperation with the Sparkasse Aachen and the Rheinische Sparkassen- und Giroverband.
The entry deadline is May 8, 2016.
Last year’s competition was won by Dutch photographer Leanjo de Koster for the picture “Wall of Shadows”, with French photographer Christophe Bricot taking out second place, and British photographer Peter Nixon third.
The previous year the winning image was taken by Pam Langrish at the Badminton Horse Trials. It showed Andrew Nicholson and Avebury landing at a fence with a dog racing out of the way.
