National Museum of Racing Calls for Submissions for Second Annual Photo Exhibition

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is pleased to announce 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 our second annual exhibition.

There is no limit to the type of photos that can be considered. 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. Photographs for consideration must be submitted by Dec. 31. A panel of judges representing both the racing and arts communities will select the photographs for the exhibition, which will open in July 2020 in the von Stade Gallery.

Application forms will be available at the Museum front desk, at the Photo Finish backstretch photography tour, and can be downloaded from the Museum’s website:

If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Luce at [email protected] or (518) 584-0400 ext. 117.

The Photo Finish call for submissions coincides with the announcement of the Museum’s annual backstretch photography tour, the Photo Finish Tour on Sunday, Aug. 25. Professional racing photographer Dona Ann McAdams will take a small group on a tour of the Oklahoma Training Track and teach participants about lighting, composition and developing your own artist’s eye. This 90-minute tour is available for ages 10 and older and must be booked and paid for in advance. Please call (518) 584-0400 ext. 120 or email [email protected] to reserve your spot today.
