ASMI seeks entries in annual photo contest

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, or ASMI, once again invites photographers from Alaska and beyond to enter their photographs in our Alaska Fishing Families Photo Contest. The Fan Favorite Grand Prize winner, which will be decided by ASMI’s Facebook fans, will win two round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines.

In addition to the Facebook Fan Favorite, ASMI will select the appropriate category for each photo and award first-, second- and third-place prizes in each of the following categories: Best Action Photo; Best Boat Photo; Best Family or Kid Photo; Best Fish Photo; Best Humor Photo; Best Scenic Photo; and Best Throwback Photo.

The first place prize winner in each category will receive an Apple iPad; the second place prize winner in each category will receive an ASMI dry bag duffle; and the third prize winner in each category will receive an Alaska Seafood sweatshirt. 

“ASMI relies on photos submitted during the photo contest to share a glimpse of the uniqueness of Alaska’s fisheries with the world,” according to a press release. “From fishing in the Aleutian Islands to the aurora borealis rippling over our fishing grounds, these images all help tell the story of Alaska seafood.”
