Photo Entries Sought for 2020 Sport Fishing Regulations Summary Photo Contest

(Anchorage) - Every year the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, publishes four regional Sport Fishing Regulation Summary booklets; Northern, Southcentral, Southeast, and Southwest. Each regional booklet features a youth angler and their catch on the front cover. ADF&G is now accepting photo entries of youth anglers, 18 years of age and younger, engaging in sport fishing for the 2020 Sport Fishing Regulations Summary booklet cover contest. The submission deadline for photo entries with a completed Media Consent Release Form is 5:00 p.m. Thursday, October 31, 2019.

A maximum of three photos may be entered. Layout 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 which the youth anglers’ parent or guardian must sign. 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.
