WIN one of TEN great prizes

Fill out the entry form below and attach your best freshwater fishing photos for your chance to win!

Categories:

  1. B.C. Fishing Landscapes – We’re looking for images that showcase B.C.’s stunning natural landscapes and freshwater fishing opportunities. Don’t worry – you don’t need to disclose the location of your favourite fishing hole!
  2. Fishing Buddies – for photos that convey the social connections made through fishing. We’re looking for images of your freshwater fishing buddies – friends, family or pets. 
  3. Fishing Firsts – for photos of a first freshwater fishing moment. This can be an image of a first fish ever caught, first fish of the season, first time ice fishing, first time fishing a new location. There’s a first time for everything!

Note: We’d love to see anglers practising boat safety and wearing PFDs where possible. And while we enjoy seeing your tidal water images, only freshwater fishing photos are eligible to win.

Prizes

First and second place prizes will be awarded for each category.

1st prize: $300

2nd prize: $150

Additionally, there will be a random draw from all submitted entries on July 26, August 9, August 23, and September 6, 2024. Random draw winners will receive a Go Fish BC prize pack, including a cap, drink tumbler and stickers.
