WFF hosts Facebook fishing photo contest

Published 11:56am Thursday, March 6, 2014

Fishing season is here and the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) invites anglers to share their fishing experience through a freshwater fishing photo contest on the WFF Facebook page. The contest has three categories: Youth, under age 16; Ladies, age 16 and up; and Big Fish, open to any age or gender and any species of freshwater fish found in the state. The winners with the most “likes” in each category will have their photos published in the 2014-15 Alabama Hunting and Fishing Digest. Photos must be received by May 14, 2014.

To enter, anglers must email their freshwater fishing photos to Traci Wood at Traci.Wood@dcnr.alabama.gov with the subject “Facebook Photo Contest.” Please include your name, address, phone number and where the photo was taken. If you have a story associated with the photo, please include it in the email — it may better your chances of getting more “likes.”

Your photo may/may not be used in the contest. Here are a few tips to help ensure the photo is accepted:

  • Keep it clean and try to limit/hide graphic images
  • Submit photos from this year only, 2014
  • Photos must be of freshwater fish harvested in Alabama

The photo submissions will be posted on the WFF Facebook page. By entering a photo in the contest, you grant WFF permission to post the photo, name, location and experience.
