Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute announces Fishing Families Photo Contest

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is seeking Alaska’s help to promote Alaska seafood species around the world with a photo contest.


In a recent release from the company, ASMI announced it is currently looking for high quality photography showcasing the best of what Alaska has to offer: the people, the scenery and the seafood.

ASMI plans to award five grand prizes in the following categories: Best Family Photo; Best Fish Photo; Best Scenic or Boat Photo; Best Action Photo; and Best Humor or Historic Photo.

Each grand prize winner will receive an Apple iPad. In addition, ASMI will award one first prize winner in each category and one second prize winner in each category.

Photography plays an important role in ASMI’s work overseas and throughout the US. ASMI uses scenic photography to showcase Alaska as the world’s premier source of wild seafood.

ASMI is a public-private partnership between the State of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry, established to foster economic development. ASMI functions as a brand manager of the Alaska Seafood family of brands in 21 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and South America and also maintains a prominent marketing program in the US. ASMI works to raise the value of Alaska’s seafood product portfolio through partnerships with retail grocers, foodservice distributors, restaurant chains, foodservice operators, universities, culinary schools, and the media.

To read the full contest rules and helpful hints and to upload your submissions, visit before Dec. 31.
