The Delaware Department of Natural Resources of Environmental Control’s Division of Fish & Wildlife recently announced the 2017-18 Delaware Hunting Photo Contest.

The winning photo will appear on the cover or will be featured inside the 2018-19 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide.

Photographers can submit their photos digitally. Photographers without the technology to upload their photos online can submit their entries as prints. The hunting photo contest is accepting entries through Jan. 31, 2018, from Delaware residents of any age, with a maximum of three entries per person.

A judging panel comprised of DNREC staff will look for technically-suitable photos that best portray this year’s contest theme, “A Day Afield,” by depicting hunters enjoying their time in the great outdoors. To be eligible, photographs must have been taken in Delaware and depict persons involved in lawful hunting activities.
