APHA and The Trail of Painted Ponies partner on art competition  


Fort Worth, Texas –Today the American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and The Trail of Painted Ponies announced an art competition partnership in celebration of APHA’s 50th anniversary.  Artists and non-artists alike are encouraged to submit designs that embody the “Celebrating the Spirit of the American Paint Horse” theme for possible production into a world-renowned Trail of Painted Ponies figurine. 


"The Trail of Painted Ponies is proud to partner with the American Paint Horse Association to create this exciting new art competition which celebrates the spirit of the American Paint Horse and the 50th anniversary of APHA,” said  Karlynn Keyes, President, The Trail of Painted Ponies. “This art competition will raise invaluable awareness of the great work of the American Paint Horse Association, while searching for the best new artistic talent in America . The winning Painted Pony from this competition may have the honor of being crafted as a collectible figurine from The Trail of Painted Ponies."


Designs will be accepted from February 1 through April 1, 2012.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three designs.


Artists may select from five copyrighted and registered Painted Ponies forms, including the newly released “Regal” design form, on which to submit their design.  There is no submission fee, and artists may submit multiple designs. Judging will be based on beauty, skill, creativity and originality, along with the concept and story of the design. The artist’s thoughts or story behind the design must be included. Winning designs will be announced May 1, 2012.


The first place design may be crafted as a figurine and will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize. Second place will be awarded a $500 cash prize, and third will receive a $250 cash prize. Submissions will not be returned.
