TAA Launches Second Annual Calendar Photo Contest 

April 6, 2022

Lexington, Ky.—The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) Calendar Photo Contest is now open for submissions. The TAA is seeking photos of Thoroughbreds at a TAA- accredited organization or of Thoroughbreds who have been adopted from a TAA-accredited organization. Online submissions will be accepted now through June 11, 2022. 

Twelve photos will be selected, including one cover photo winner which will receive a Tipperary 9800 Devon with MIPS® helmet. Additionally, all twelve winners will receive a Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance swag bag and 2023 TAA Calendar. Winners will be announced in August 2022. Repole Stable is once again sponsoring the production and distribution of the TAA calendar. 

“The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance does important work and we’re happy to help them further their mission anyway we can,” said Tipperary Equestrian Owner, David Anderson. “Good luck to all of the contestants entering the TAA’s photo contest.” 

“2021 was our first year hosting a calendar photo contest and we received so many excellent submissions,” said Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Marketing and Communications Manager, Alexandra Kokka. “Our accredited organizations do an amazing job caring for these retired athletes and matching them with the right adopters— any opportunity we have to highlight TAA off-track Thoroughbreds is a worthwhile endeavor. The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is grateful to have Repole Stable and Tipperary sign on for a second year to sponsor the calendar and contest prize, respectively.” 

Photo submissions must be in JPEG format in high-resolution (at least 300ppi) and in landscape layout only. Color photographs are preferred. Themes of photos may include the following: Seasons (showcasing a winter scene, etc.), OTTB in training, happy adopter, OTTB used in equine-assisted therapy, etc. Submissions are free and open to residents of the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
