Horses in Need Documentary Photo Project
Documenting horses in need around the world.

This should be a photo - story illustrating a horse's life in documentary/editorial/ photojournalistic style.
Minimum 4 and maximum 8 photos supported by text to tell a story.
Existing work over period of time acceptable.
Photos from this project will be featured in an upcoming special rescue edition of the EPNet newsletter and will be available to AHP publication members for possible publication.
Photos for this project will be uploaded as threads in the forum, not in the photo albums. If you prefer, you may publish your work as a web page and then post that link in the project area of the forum.
Limit three stories per photographer.
Upload Deadline is August 1.

The mission of this project is to shine a light on the condition of horses in need in the world, and the work that individuals, rescues and other organizations are doing to save them from uncertain futures. While shooting for this project and gathering information think of the end use to be an article spotlighting the person(s), horse(s) or group that you are documenting. Make contact on the local level with people working to save horses in need. Make sure that your subject is aware of what you are doing and obtain releases as needed from people that may be recognizable in your photos.

Ideas:
Recycled Racehorses
Sanctuaries
BLM Holding Pens
Auction Houses
Retirement Facilities
Rescue Foster Homes
Rescue workers

Please add ideas, questions, etc as a reply to this thread.
When you are ready to post your story start it as a new thread in this forum:

Thank you to everyone that participated in this Project!
We will be featuring the stories in a special rescue edition of the EPNet newsletter that will be mailed in September.
Because some people were not able to meet the deadline we will leave the assignment area open until Sept 1 if anyone still wishes to post a story.
This will be an annual project so please plan to participate next year.

I have read all the submissions here, and would like to thank everyone for what must have been at times, heartbreakng work. I am glad to read this will be an annual project, as given people's tendencies, there will never be a shortage of horses in need. They ask so little, and receive even less, that it is difficult to confront man's inhumanity to God's creatures. We read the articles, we cry, we get angry, and perhaps something catches a spark and will slowly catch fire, something which will move more people to stand up and speak out.

Thank you to everyone who put this project challenge together. Well done.

Ditto and well said Diana. I enjoyed reading all the stories (we have some fantastic writers in our group) and kudos to everyone who participated.
