JHathaway2 Every year, the editors of National Fisherman gather our favorite reader-submitted Crew Shots to publish on the cover and in a spread of our January issue.
We look forward to this issue because it reminds us of who our readers are and how hard you all work to bring fresh, healthy protein to the docks of American cities and towns from coast to coast.
Please e-mail your high-resolution photos (at least 1,260 x 945) taken this year with "crew shots 10" in the subject line to email@example.com.
Be sure to include the vessel name, home port, where the shot was taken (if not in the home port) and the names of all pictured crew members from left to right.
We can't always publish every photo, but we do our best to get in one from each photographer and a variety of ports (that includes all of you in the Gulf of Mexico and the Northeast!).
If we can't publish your photo in the magazine, it goes into the queue for our online crew shots, updated to our home page and Facebook fan page every week. You can also see an archive of them on our Facebook page.
