Fishing snapshots in the picture for 2012

by NSW DPI on 12 Dec 2011
Fishing calendar looking for your best shots ..
NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) has put the State’s top fishing photographs in focus in the 2012 NSW Recreational Fishing Calendar.

NSW DPI Fisheries Manager, Sarah Boyd, said the calendars are now available in print and online and showcase recreational fishing for what it is, a great recreational sport and leisure activity.

'Fishing remains a popular past time, with more than one million recreational fishers getting out and about every year to take part,' Ms Boyd said.

'The photos featured in the calendar are a good example of what great fun can be had, hitting the water for a bit of fishing. This calendar has been produced through the support of the NSW Recreational Fishing Trusts and is being made available for free for all to enjoy.

'We’ve had hundreds of entries for the calendar, and are really pleased with the quality of entries. The photos keep getting better each year and the printed calendars disappear very quickly so I recommend if you want one to get in early.'

Ms Boyd said she is looking forward to receiving the next round of photographs with entries now open for the 2013 Recreational Fishing Calendar.

'I encourage all fishers to take the camera out next time they hit the water and take a photo of their favourite fishing experience,' Ms Boyd said. 'Judges will be looking for photos that can’t be easily recreated, that ‘special shot’ capturing a memorable moment. The competition is open to anyone who would like to illustrate their interest in recreational fishing through their photos.'

There are also 12 great prizes to be won.

Photo entries must have been taken in NSW to be eligable for the calendar. Entries need to be received by the Recreational Fisheries staff by the 31st of July 2012. In order to enter you must read the terms and conditions and submit your entry online.

Photos for the competition can be entered online and entries must be sent in by July 31, 2012.

Orders for copies of the calendar can be placed by visiting the fisheries NSW DPI website at http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/info/photo-competition
