The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Division of Fish & Wildlife is encouraging anglers and photography enthusiasts to enter the 2017 Delaware Fishing Photo Contest.

The winning photo will be on the cover or featured inside the 2018 Delaware Fishing Guide.

New this year, for ease of entry in the contest, photographers will be able to submit their photos digitally at Fish & Wildlife photo contest. Photographers without the means to upload their photos online may submit their entries as prints. The contest is accepting entries through Oct. 31 from Delaware residents of any age, with a maximum of three entries per person.

A judging panel comprised of DNREC staff will be looking for technically-suitable photos that best portray this year’s contest theme, “Catch a Memory,” by depicting anglers enjoying fishing. To be eligible, photographs must have been taken in Delaware and depict persons involved in lawful fishing activities.

Complete contest rules and information, entry forms and instructions for uploading entries can be found at
