Submissions are still being accepted for the foreseeable future, fixed date to be announced in next month’s issue of International Aquafeed.

Aquaculture is rapidly being seen as the way forward for a safe food future. Once looked upon with mistrust, now consumers are starting to see the industry as the only way they want to eat their fish.

International Aquafeed magazine aims to continue to boost aquacultures reputation and reflect the best image of our industry and what better way to do that than through photography? Funds raised through the 2017 competition will go to the charity we support, Aquaculture without Frontiers CIO UK, to support small-scale aquaculture production in communities in developing countries.”

Works will be enlarged and reproduced to the scale of approximately 20” x 30”. Therefore, the submitted work must be of sufficiently high quality (eg. sharp, clear, good contrast, well-exposed) for reproduction and printing process. An industry panel will carry out an initial judging.

The final 20 works will be viewed by a ‘Judges Panel’ comprised of three judges who will be looking for images that illustrate the aquaculture theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; originality and creativity, image quality and overall artistic merit.

If your entry is judged in the top three by the Selection and Judges Panel you will be awarded one of three prizes.

1st prize – IPAD PRO 12.9-INCH (128GB)
2nd prize – US$500
3rd prize – US$300

Winning photographs will be printed as posters and showcased at the European Aquaculture Society’s Dubrovnik 2017 Conference to be held in Croatia on October 17-19, 2017.
