(Statewide) – Get any good photos of kids fishing this year?
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, is accepting photo submissions to the 2022 sport fish regulation summary cover photo contest. The submission deadline for photo entries with a completed and signed Media Consent Release Form is 5 p.m., Sunday, October 31, 2021.
To be considered for the cover, the primary person in the photo must be under the age of 18 when the photo was taken, and the photo must have been taken in Alaska. We are looking for photos that represent what sport fishing means to young people and their families.
A maximum of three photos may be entered. Lay-out restrictions are such that only horizontal photos will be considered for the front cover. Vertical or horizontal photos will be considered for inside pages. There are no age requirements for individuals featured in photos to be considered for use on the inside pages.
All photo submissions must be accompanied by a completed Media Consent Release Form with the youth anglers’ parent or guardian’s signature and information to be considered. Please include the name of the body of water or drainage in which the photo was taken and information about the angler(s) in the photo. Photos showing evidence of fish and game violations, unethical angling behavior, unsafe actions, or product advertisement will not be considered. Images showing young anglers on a boat not wearing a life jacket will not be considered.
ADF&G publishes four, separate sport fishing regulation summary books each year – Northern, Southeast, Southwest and Southcentral. Each regional booklet features a youth angler or a family of anglers and their catch on the cover.
Please email submissions to the appropriate contact in the region where the fish was caught:
- Northern Alaska
- Erik Anderson in Fairbanks, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Southcentral and Southwest Alaska
- Kali Hulquist in Anchorage, email@example.com
- Southeast Alaska
- Coral Bauer in Juneau/Douglas, firstname.lastname@example.org
