We've got a great range of submissions for our annual Crew Shots issue, but I'm not sure if we've found our cover shot yet. If you want to get your crew on the cover of National Fisherman, now's your chance.
I love seeing the range of expressions (mostly happy) of the nation's commercial fishermen onboard with their catch and their crew. Let's celebrate the industry by showing off the heritage, history and diversity of America's fisheries. (Check out past covers here>>)
Send your pics to me with Crew Shots 2014 in the subject line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or click here to submit online. The deadline is October 31.
Please make sure you include names of everyone in the photo (from left to right), the fishery, the boat, the home port and the location of the shot (if not the home port).
See you in the magazine!
