The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is looking for your best hunting photographs to include in the 2007-08 Alaska Hunting Regulations and other Wildlife Conservation publications. Deadline for entries is March 1.
In addition to photos of hunters and their game, images that depict all aspects of the hunt - daily life in camp, animals in the field, scenery and images that show the diversity of our hunting population - are especially encouraged.
All photographs submitted are reviewed by a committee. The final number of images selected is determined by the amount of space available in each publication.
Each photo submitted should include the following information:
Written permission from the photographer for ADF&G to use the photo in their publications must be provided (photographer will be credited whenever possible).
Names of any people shown in the photo and ages, if under 21 years old.
Identify the Game Management Unit and area where the hunt took place, hunt date, method of take and name of the person who took the animal.
Briefly describe the hunt. (See current hunting regulations book for examples of photo captions.)
E-mail no more than five photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to Alaska Department of Fish and Game, 1800 Glenn Highway, Suite 4, Palmer, AK, 99645, Attention Jodi Snyder.
