Bonefish & Tarpon Journal Cover Contest

BTT is pleased to announce that the Bonefish & Tarpon Journal Cover Contest is open for submissions! Send us your very best images from the flats. We’re looking for unique and stunning photos that feature habitat and fish (bonefish, tarpon, or permit). Anglers and boats can also be present, but are not required to be.

Please provide your full name, address, and phone number with the entry, as well as a short description of the image(s). Each participant may submit up to three photos for the contest. If your photo is selected, we will follow up for the highest resolution photo you can provide.
