International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association

2021 Calendar Contest Open

Calendar Photo Contest

Have you taken an amazing photograph of an Andalusian horse recently? OR, do you know someone who has? Then we want you to know about the photo contest for IALHA’s 2021 member calendar!

Any and all photographers – professionals, hobbyists, and enthusiasts alike – are invited to submit up to three photos of their choosing that were taken in the last 2 years

Photographs of all IALHA registered Andalusian horses are eligible: pure bred Spanish, Portuguese (Lusitano), Spanish/Portuguese, and half-bred horses.

Of the images submitted, the publications committee will select 13 that best represent the breed for the 2020 IALHA Calendar. Preference will be given to those that highlight the breed’s beauty and versatility.

The images chosen for the calendar cover and months will not only be featured in the calendar, but also in a variety of other ways during the month selected. 

Also, this year the option to preorder calendars will be made available.  Order as many copies as you’d like if your photo, or horse are selected for inclusion in the calendar, or if you’d just like to have extra copies to give as gifts.

 We hope you will contribute to this annual event that celebrates the magnificent Andalusian and Lusitano.  Applications will be accepted through October 1st, 2020.  If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
