July 20, 2008

Port Townsend, Washington- based Integrated Marine Systems invites the fishing community to tell their fishing story with pictures! Photos entered should relate to the commercial fishing industry community that IMS serves. Pictures of vessels actively fishing are welcome and so are pictures of favorite people, pictures of fishing vessels at the dock or at sea, crews at work or having fun - are all welcome. If it's about fishing and the lifestyle that accompanies it, IMS would love to see it!

Winning photos will be displayed at the 2008 Pacific Marine EXPO in Seattle. Winners will also be recognized in leading trade publications. Slides or printed images with negatives are fine. Digital photos should be 3 megapixels or higher for reproduction. Entries can be submitted by email or postal mail and must be received by October 15th. Entering is free - the entry form and rules can be downloaded.

A panel of three Independent judges will select the top 20 pictures. Since the winning photos will be displayed in large format at the IMS EXPO booth, higher-resolution photos will fare better in the judging process. Other judging criteria include sharpness, light, subject matter and visual impact.

Prizes will be awarded as follows: 1st prize: $2000, 2nd prize: $1000, 3rd prize: $500 and 4th prize to 20th prize will receive a Red Ledge™ Fortitech Jacket.
