2012 Contributor Contest and Awards

The yearly contributor contest is back and better than ever! This year we’re going to give away even more prizes, and the contributor of the year will receive a custom one-of-a-kind Sportsmans Trophy Plaque designed by Fishing Fury.

We’re still collecting gear for the full prize list, but I can tell you that there are already over a dozen great prizes in the pot from great companies like Water Gremlin, Insect Sheild, Big Smallie Jigs, Zazzy Pop, Survival Straps, LunkerHunt, Fishing Butler, Militant Outdoors, Frog Hair, and more!

Contest Rules

These are the rules for the 2012 contributor contest, please read them carefully. You must comply with all the rules to be eligible for the grand prize, the high quality images are required to create (print) the best Sportsman Trophy Plaque possible.

  1. All fish must be legally caught in 2012 under the stated rules of your local department of natural resources. No out of season fish will be accepted for this contest. In some cases we may ask you to give us help finding this information to confirm your catch.

  2. At least two high-resolution (4 megapixel or greater) digital photos. We want the ones straight off your digital camera, no photoshopping or colour correcting allowed. Just the raw photos please. This is a requirement of the grand prize, though you could still potentially win secondary prizes with a low resolution photo, the higher resolution the better.

  3. At least 100 words about your experience. Don’t forget to include a title, location, species of fish, weather conditions, and lures used.

  4. Your full name, mailing address, email address, along with your photos and story, emailed to [email protected] with the subject of “2012 Contributor Contest”. Alternatively you can post your entry to our forums and tag the thread “2012 Contributor Contest” and PM your mailing address to us.

  5. Multiple entries are allowed, though you can only win one of the top prizes.

  6. By submitting your story and photos to this contest you give us the rights to republish them on our website.

  7. All contents must be received before January 1st 2013.

Good luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing your entries!
