New! Catch & Release Video Contest
Shoot your catch and win a prize! (Of course we mean with a camera!) Young anglers up to age 16 are invited to enter our first video contest by submitting a short video – no more than three minutes – showing others how to properly release fish. Share your best release tips and your enthusiasm for good fishing practices, and we just might pick your video for the IGFA Junior Angler website, or maybe even the next issue of the International Angler!
Who can enter: Anglers up to 16 years old
The criteria: Submit a video no longer than three minutes that shows others how to properly release a catch. Check out our page on catch and release practices (http://igfa.org/Learn/Catch-and-Release.aspx) for inspiration!
How to submit: Upload your video to YouTube and email us the link with the subject line “Check out my Junior Angler Catch and Release Video!” Be sure to include your name, age, and a brief description of your video including the type of fish you caught and where you caught it.
Deadline: All submission emails must be received by midnight EST on Tuesday, May 31, 2013.
The prize: Your video, if selected, will be featured on the IGFA Junior Angler website and in the International Angler magazine, reaching tens of thousands of anglers around the world! In addition, the TOP video will receive a special limited edition poster and a package from IGFA Education Director Jeff Mackin.
What are you waiting for? Brush up on the best catch and release practices (http://igfa.org/Learn/Catch-and-Release.aspx), grab your rod and camera (and maybe some friends!), and get to work making the best video for our video contest.
