|HARRISBURG, Pa. – Picture yourself as the winner of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) annual photography contest. There’s still time since the PFBC has extended its deadline for entries to January 31, 2013. Past winners have seen their works featured in Commission publications such as Pennsylvania Angler & Boater magazine and enlarged as visuals for PFBC sportshow exhibits.
The contest is a great way for angling and boating photographers to not only show their craft but to also show their appreciation for the Commonwealth’s fishing and boating opportunities and aquatic resources. There are three judged categories this year with highly valued top prizes.
The category “Anglers and Boaters” invites photographers to participate with submissions showing themselves and family members on the water. “Waterway Scenics” invites inspiring environmental images of your favorite Pennsylvania stream or lake. The category “Reptiles and Amphibians” encourages photographers to capture a moment when they may see a frog, toad, snake, turtle, salamander or skink in their native habitat.
