The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame has announced the return of its juried photography exhibition program, Photo Finish. The Museum is now accepting submissions for consideration from both amateur and professional photographers of scenes depicting Thoroughbred racing in America for its third annual exhibition. Racing scenes, portraits (both human and equine), whimsical, morning workouts, retired racehorses, etc., are all welcome; it is up to the photographer to interpret the theme and be as creative as possible. The Museum also welcomes photographs documenting what racing was like during the pandemic in this unusual 2020 season.
Photographs for consideration must be submitted by May 10, 2021. A panel of judges representing both the racing and arts communities will select the photographs for the exhibition, which will open in November 2021 in the von Stade Gallery.
Application forms will be available at the Museum front desk and can be downloaded from the Museum's website here. If you have any questions, contact Curator Victoria Reisman at [email protected] or (518) 584-0400 ext. 113.
The second annual Photo Finish exhibition will remain on display in through Jan. 31, 2021. The online exhibition will be available on the Museum website through Summer 2021 and can be accessed here.
