Connecticut Angler’s Guide photo contest

This year be sure to pack a camera in your tackle box so you can snap a quick photo and prevent the dreaded “one that got away” moment.

As a picture is worth a thousand words, Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Inland and Marine Fisheries divisions are looking to share your fish stories with your fellow anglers by welcoming you to submit your best fishing-related digital photos.

DEEP is looking for high-resolution photos that appeal to a diversity of anglers and the general public. Submitted photos must be outdoor scenes that include one or more people fishing or displaying their catch. Images should be in sharp focus and have good color contrast. Those of sufficient quality and resolution will be considered for the grand prize, being featured on the cover of the 2014 Connecticut Angler’s Guide. Contest information and submittal forms can be found online at

In addition to possible use in the Connecticut Angler’s Guide, submitted photos, with credit to the photographer, may be used by CT DEEP for display on a variety of fisheries outreach materials including press releases, web pages, Facebook, educational materials and other publications.

For additional information contact Mike Beauchene at 860-424-4185 or email
