Hunting season is here and the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) invites hunters to enter its Facebook photo contest! The contest features three subject matter categories: Youth, photos depicting youth under age 16 with their harvested doe or buck; Ladies, photos depicting women age 16 and older with their harvested doe or buck; and Big Bucks, photos depicting hunters of any age or gender with their harvested buck (no point minimum). In each of the categories, the photo can be taken by anyone, but the person in the photo must be the person who harvested the deer.
Honorable mentions will be assigned on a bimonthly basis to photos with the most Facebook likes. When hunting season ends on January 31, 2013, photos with the most likes in each category will be showcased on the WFF Facebook page. The winning photos in each category will also be printed in the 2013-2014 Alabama Hunting and Fishing Digest.
The WFF Facebook page can be found by searching “Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division” in Facebook.
To enter the contest, email your hunting photos to Traci.Wood@dcnr.alabama.gov with the subject “Facebook Photo Contest”. Photos posted directly to the WFF Facebook page will not be considered as contest entries. Please include your name, address, phone number and where the photo was taken. If there is a story associated with the photo, please share it in the email; it may better your chances of earning more likes.
Depending on the subject matter, some photos might not be used in the contest. Here are some criteria to consider when submitting your images:
- Keep it clean! Limit or hide graphic images such as blood and wounds.
- Submit photos only from the current hunting season.
- Photos must be from deer harvested in Alabama.
- Photos may be submitted throughout deer season. Deadline for entries is January 31, 2013.
- By entering your photo in the contest you grant WFF permission to post the photo, name, location and story associated with the photo.
