Each class has title theme to inspire the entries for it. Do your best to interpret what that name means to you! There are no wrong answers if you are sincere
Judges will be looking for interpretation of the theme, imagination and quality of execution. Realistic backgrounds are not required.
In performance there are two tracks. One is Consistency for one horse to attempt ALL the classes (or as many as they want, completion is not a requirement), and consistency entries must note that they are campaigning for that track. The Specialist judge will only consider a different model per chosen class. The entrant can enter multiple horses in multiple classes but a specific horse can only show ONCE/ONE CLASS in the division.
Aside from winners being announced and shown on the live stream, the winner of each class will have their photo featured on the maresinblack.com blog.
No class limits. Showers may enter as many pictures as they'd like, but individual models can only have one picture per class.
Photos will be self-loaded and will include horse name, breed, gender, owner initials and division (& performance track if necessary) in the title. Any documentation can be added in the comments.The Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show
Albums will go up for loading on October 1st!
