MEPSA Contests


Here is our contest schedule for this season! MEPSA reserves the right to be somewhat flexible, and to substitute prizes for something of equal or greater value if necessary. We may, in fact, offer a choice of the prize named here, or an alternative, as we get closer to each contest date. We may offer two divisions of any contest with enough entries, and a second smaller prize!

Writing contest
Deadline: January 15, 2018
Submission: e-mail your article to Elizabeth Jones,
Length: We need both longer and shorter articles. 1000-3000 words is the length to shoot for.
Format: Text should be formatted in Microsoft Word (.doc) or .rtf or .txt. Name your text file using your last name (e.g. jones.doc). Do not embed images in your article. Send the illustrations for your article as separate .jpg files (no more than 2mb each), named using your last name and the figure number (e.g. "jonesfig1.jpg"). Illustrations must be original or used by permission from the source. Provide a source for each illustration as they will be listed in the figure captions (e.g. photo by Corina Roberts). Illustrations are an essential part of almost any article. You may include a short byline describing yourself/credentials/place in the hobby.

- Model horse manufacturers: a history of Hagen Renacker or Breyer or artist resins …
- Fiction/poetry – We are willing to accept these submissions. Of course they should be horse related. We will not be printing more than one "creative work" in the Champ book. Others may appear in the club newsletter.
