#WeDerby At Home Challenge
Louisville, we will miss celebrating the Derby in person but we want to unite you with people all around the country to showcase your Derby outfits on May 2nd! Utilize the hashtag #WeDerbyAtHome to showcase how fly you would have been if the 146th Derby would have run as planned.
Saturday, May 2nd we will be sending out the best photographers around the city of Louisville to take your Red Carpet Derby Day moment at home. Using long range cameras, our photographers will be at a safe distance, while still capturing your unique style.
Register today for a chance to be photographed on “Original Derby Day 2020” like a celebrity for the big event. A $5 donation will allow you the opportunity to preserve this unprecedented historical moment. In turn for your donation, #WeDerby will feature your fashion portrait in our online gallery and also in the #WeDerbyAtHome Best Dressed contest.
