Photo Finish Juried Photography Exhibition

The Museum is now accepting submissions for the fifth annual juried photography exhibition, Photo Finish. Entries may be submitted by professional as well as amateur photographers and must relate to the sport of Thoroughbred racing in America. Any aspect of the racing experience may be depicted, including, but not limited to, racing scenes, the backstretch, and emotions of the crowd. We encourage creative and unique perspectives.

New for 2023: If selected, photographers will only need to print and mat photos and framing will no longer be required. Additionally, two submissions will be allowed per person. All submissions must be received by June 30. Application forms will be available at the Museum’s Visitor Services desk and can be downloaded here.

A panel of judges representing both the racing and arts communities will select photographs for the exhibition, which will open in the von Stade Gallery in November. Additional photographs may be selected at the discretion of the judges to be included in the online exhibition. The fourth annual Photo Finish online exhibition will be available on the Museum website through October and can be accessed here.

If you have any questions, please contact the Museum’s curator, Jessica Cloer, at or (518) 584-0400 ext. 113.
