2013 Photography Competition


2013 Photography Competition

Its spring time! To celebrate we are launching a photography competition for all our visitors to the Stud during 2013.

We are looking for the best photos of The National Stud taken by visitors on our daily tours.

Each month, from February through to the end of October, we will choose a photo that best represents The National Stud and its equine residents.  The winning photographer will receive a £5 voucher to spend in the coffee shop, gift shop or put towards a tour!  The winning photo from each month will also be featured on our Facebook page.
Of all the entries, an overall winner will be chosen for the year.  The grand prize for the overall winner is to have their photo featured as the front cover of the 2014 National Stud Stallion Book!
