Hunting photo contest entries due Jan. 31

October 8, 2017

DNREC's Division of Fish & Wildlife invites hunters and outdoor photographers to enter the 2017-18 Delaware Hunting Photo Contest. The winning photo will appear  on the cover or be featured inside the 2018-19 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide.

New this year, for ease of entry in the contest, photographers will be able to submit their photos digitally at Fish & Wildlife Photo Contest. Photographers without the technology to upload their photos online may continue to submit their entries as prints. The hunting photo contest is accepting entries through Wednesday, Jan. 31, from Delaware residents of any age, with a maximum of three entries per person.

A judging panel composed of DNREC staff will be looking for technically suitable photos that best portray this year's contest theme, A Day Afield, by depicting hunters enjoying their time in the great outdoors. To be eligible, photographs must have been taken in Delaware and depict people involved in lawful hunting activities.

For complete contest rules and information, entry forms and instructions for uploading entries, go to and search Fish & Wildlife photo contest. For more information, contact Jennifer Childears at 302-739-9910 or email
