2023 Sport Fishing Regulations Summary Booklets Photo Contest

Send us your best shots! Did you get any great photos of your kiddos fishing this year? If so, send your top three photos our way.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, is accepting photo submissions for the 2023 Sport Fishing Regulation Summary booklets. ADF&G publishes four, separate sport fishing regulation summary books each year for the Northern, Southcentral, Southeast, and Southwest regions. Every year each regional booklet features a new cover photo of a youth angler or a family of anglers and their catch. The submission deadline for photo entries with a completed and signed media consent release form is 5:00 p.m., Monday, October 31, 2022.

Please email submissions to the appropriate contact in the region where the fish was caught. Your email should include the anglers first and last name, age, species of fish, and the name of the waterbody the fish was caught at and include as attachments the signed media release form and up to three photos. Remember, photos submitted without a media release form will not be accepted. 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.

A maximum of three photos may be entered. To be considered for the cover, the primary person in the photo must be under the age of 18 when the photo was taken, and the photo must have been taken in Alaska. We are looking for photos that represent what sport fishing means to young people and their families. Photos not selected for the cover, may be used on the inside pages of the corresponding booklet. There are no age requirements for individuals featured in photos to be considered for use on the inside pages. Layout restrictions apply to the front cover that only horizontal photos will be considered. Vertical and horizontal photos will be considered for inside pages and there is no age requirement.

You can email your submissions to the following regional contacts:
