Mariculture Photo Contest


The Alaska Mariculture Alliance and the Alaska Mariculture Cluster invite you to enter in the Mariculture Photo Contest!

Enter for a chance to win cash prizes and have your photos displayed at the Mariculture Photography Gallery at the 3rd Annual Mariculture Conference of Alaska! Photo entries will be judged by a panel of local photographers. Contest winners will be announced at the Mariculture Conference of Alaska and by email on February 29, 2024, with one final vote for a public choice award of conference attendees. The deadline to enter the contest is February 7, 2024.

We’re looking to build our media library with photos that show off Alaska’s diverse mariculture industry – you can submit an unlimited number of photos, and are not limited to contest categories. We are especially seeking photos of the industry’s faces in action – that means action shots!
