Horses in Need Documentary Project 2011

Postby EPNet Admin on Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:57 am

Horses in Need Documentary Photo Project
Documenting horses in need around the world.
Deadline: January 1

This should be a photo - story illustrating a horse's life in documentary/editorial/ photojournalistic style.
Minimum 4 and maximum 8 photos supported by text to tell a story.
Existing work over a period of time acceptable.
Photos from this project will be featured in an upcoming special rescue edition of the EPNet newsletter and will be available to AHP publication members for possible publication.
Photos for this project will be uploaded as threads in the forum, not in the photo albums. If you prefer, you may publish your work as a web page and then post that link in the project area of the forum.
Limit three stories per photographer.
Upload Deadline is January 1.

The mission of this project is to shine a light on the condition of horses in need in the world, and the work that individuals, rescues and other organizations are doing to save them from uncertain futures. While shooting for this project and gathering information think of the end use to be an article spotlighting the person(s), horse(s) or group that you are documenting. Make contact on the local level with people working to save horses in need. Make sure that your subject is aware of what you are doing and obtain releases as needed from people that may be recognizable in your photos.

Ideas:
Recycled Racehorses
Sanctuaries
BLM Holding Pens
Auction Houses
Retirement Facilities
Rescue Foster Homes
Rescue workers

Please add ideas, questions, etc as a reply to this thread.
When you are ready to post your story start it as a new thread in this forum:

I was wanting to submit to this years project as a first timer. I think I was under the wrong impression that we were documenting the rescue/ organization and not one horse in particular... So was I wrong? I went for diversity instead of focusing on one animal. I do have multiple images of one of the workers though.... I'd love to be apart of this and I know it's due tonight, so hopefully someone can help :). Thanks

Mary, it is fine to document an organization, or the story of one horse. Go ahead and post your story as I did not see your question till this morning, we would like to feature as many stories as possible.

Great idea Carien, The more aspects & perspectives one can gather on this topic, the better!
