Calling all BC First Nations fishers and photographers…
The First Nations Fisheries Council is holding our photo contest!
Grand Prize: $250 Visa Gift Card – Deadline Friday, September 28, 2018
The FNFC photo contest is back and we’re seeking beautiful First Nations fisheries-related photos to appear in our 2019 calendar!
Twelve winning photos will be chosen, and one GRAND PRIZE winner will be selected from among the 12 photos. The grand prize photo will be featured on the calendar’s cover, and the photographer will receive a $250 Visa gift card! Photographers who submit the other 11 winning photos will each receive a $25 Visa gift card. All winning photographers will also receive a copy of the calendar.
Depending on the geographic range represented in the photo entries, we will aim to select photos from as many different regions across the province as possible. We also hope to feature as many different species, aquatic resources, fishing methods and activities as possible, so you may get points for originality!
Some suggestions for photos: traditional First Nations fishing/harvesting practices, fishing or habitat areas, fish/aquatic resources, First Nations sustainable aquaculture activities, First Nations economic fisheries, youth fisheries engagement and learning, fisheries activities that are specific to your region, technical surveys/assessment/monitoring or scientific research activities, traditional food preparation and preservation methods using fish or aquatic resources, community feasts, cultural activities, or any other fisheries related scenes you can think of!
