Harrisburg, PA – From 40 participants in 2013, the Amazing Animal Photo Contest grew to over 70 entries in 2014 with even more expected for 2015. The Amazing Animal Photo Contest is returning to the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) for its third consecutive year. All submitted photos will be displayed at the Show from October 8th to 17th, 2015.
Photos will have 6 category winners and, new for 2015, one Facebook Choice Award. Categories include: Animal Portraits, Animals in Action and Animals and The People Who Love Them. Each category will have an Adult winner (19 years or older) and a Junior Winner (18 years or younger).
