Photo Entries Sought for the 2021 Sport Fishing Regulations Summary Photo Contest

(Anchorage) - Send us your best shot! Did you get any good pictures this year of fishing with your family or friends? If so, consider submitting a few shots to the 2021 Sport Fishing Regulations Summary book cover photo contest.

Every year the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, publishes four regional Sport Fishing Regulations Summary booklets - Northern, Southcentral, Southeast, and Southwest.

ADF&G is now accepting photo entries of youth anglers and families or friends fishing together for the cover photo contest. The submission deadline for photo entries with a completed and signed Media Consent Release Form is 5:00 p.m. Saturday, October 31, 2020.

A maximum of three photos may be entered. Lay-out restrictions are such that only horizontal photos will be considered for the front cover. Both vertical and horizontal photos will be considered for inside pages which have no age requirement. For photo submissions to be considered, all photos must be accompanied by a completed Media Consent Release Form. If there are anglers under the age of eighteen in the photo, the Media Consent Release form must be signed by a parent or guardian. 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 that show evidence of fish and game violations, unethical, or unsafe actions or advertisement will not be considered - this includes youths in a boat without a life vest.

Please email all photos and the completed and signed Media Consent Release Form to the appropriate regional contact below where the fish were caught:
