Photo Competition 2018

Open to novice and amateur photographers of all ages (sorry no professionals) the competition has five categories for you to enter.
A selection of the best entries will be displayed at the centre and the winners in each category will receive a year's free membership, a Shire Horse model and have their winning shot appear in Cotebrook Shire Horse Centres 2019 visitor leaflet - 120,000 of which are distributed across the North West.
This year we are introducing our 5th Category "Selfies"!

Entrants must only submit one picture per category.
Photos previously taken at Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre may also be submitted.
1. Shire Horse
Entrants should be able to capture the old English breed in all its glory. Home to some of the biggest and best Shire horses in the world, finding the right shot shouldn't be a "tall order".
Last years we had joint winners in the Shire Horse Category

2. Farm and Wild animals
With a fantastic selection of British animals both wild and domesticated, there should be no shortage of creative photo opportunities.

3. Landscape and Shire horses
We have 50 acres for you to roam to find the perfect picture that shows Cotebrook Shire Horse Centres stunning scenery including our Shire horses.
