Would you like a photograph of your child to appear on the cover of the 2011 sport fishing regulations? The Division of Sport Fish is now accepting entries for its annual cover-photo contest.

To be considered for the cover, photos must feature one or more youths sport fishing or demonstrating what sport fishing means to them. The primary person in the photo must have been younger than age 18 when the photo was taken and must be an Alaska resident. Pictures that include advertisements or contain people performing illegal acts or acts that the Department of Fish and Game considers inappropriate for sport fishing regulations covers will not be included in the contest.
