Fish & Wildlife Hunting and Fishing Photo Contests


Click here for entry forms and guidelines for the hunting and fishing photo contests.

This contest is part of Delaware’s Children in Nature Initiative, a statewide effort to improve environmental literacy in Delaware, create opportunities for children to participate in enriching outdoor experiences, combat childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyles. Delaware’s multi-agency initiative, which partners several state and federal agencies with community organizations, is part of the national No Child Left Inside program.

Three judges – Fish and Wildlife Director, Dave Saveikis, and local photographers Tony Pratt and Freda Barrett, both DNREC employees – review the photo hunting entries and narrow both contests down to the top five. The contests specify that photographs must have been taken in Delaware and must depict conservationists participating in fishing or hunting activities. Judges look for photos that best portray each year's theme. the “Conservationists Enjoying the Outdoors” theme.
