You Are the Subject of the Photo

We are happy to receive photos of you with your big catch. Please make sure you are the main feature of the photo and your fish is not obscuring your face.

Things To Avoid

Image Too Small

This image is too small to use for promotional purposes.

Blurry or Pixelated Photo

Image is the minimum size but it’s blurry and pixelated. His face can’t be seen behind his fish. His face is in shadow and we can’t see his eyes.

Person Not Main Subject

This is a great photo of a fish! The person sort of fades away into the background though. Ensure your photo makes the person the main subject.
