Vote for Joy

2022 Best of Best in Show Contest

Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Nobody does it better than Newport Polo Fans!  The electric atmosphere and joie de vivre are tangible contributions of the enthusiastic audience that lines the field each Saturday, taking the tailgate tradition to new heights week after week.  The last leg of the journey down the canopy-lined driveway of Linden Lane on a warm summer afternoon gives way to the open vistas of BD Field and the excitement on display.  Three decades have witnessed increasingly elaborate spreads, fashions and hats to the nines, 5-star food and beverage menus, and decoration to cheer on the home team along with its rivals.  The love from the fans is felt by all who make their way across our field, and we want our fans to know that the appreciation is mutual. 

During the season, our judges scour the sidelines each week in search of the most extravagant bacchanal to bestow our Best In Show laurels.  A special prize from Stella Artois is awarded to toast the standout group, along with a much-coveted moment of fame on the Brenton Hotel Jumbotron.  Weekly themes provide endless possibilities for hopefuls to detail their picnics with an eye on the prize.  Our resident photographer, Cocoa & Co, documents the creative contenders in the running to preserve every bit of the thought that is put into each ballyhoo. 

Starting on November 30th, we are assembling the shining stars of 2022 to hand the final decision over to the most discerning judges, our fans, who will crown one ultimate winner as the Best of the Best in Show.  To see if your party is in the running and to cast your discerning votes, follow this link to the Vote for Joy Photo Album on the Newport Polo Facebook Fan Page.  One winner will receive the Grand Prize, a Cocoa & Co Mini Portrait Session of their choice.  Plus, all participants may claim their reward for voting.  Continue reading for prize information and official contest rules.
