2017 Art Contest is On!

by | Feb 16, 2017 | National Championship News, News


We are delighted to once again be offering our popular art contest, where artists from around the globe compete to have their Andalusian / Lusitano themed creative work chosen as the official art of the 2017 International and Lusitano Horse Association National Championship Show.  This year are format will be similar to other years, with the exception that two winners will be chosen.  One winner will represent the IALHA at the 2017 National Show and the second winner will be our 2018 representative!  It is our intention to continue to offer our art contest in future years, however, we hope to be able to choose the winners early enough in advance that we can promote our National Show with the winning art work for a longer period of time, hence giving our winning artists even more exposure.
