MONTHLY PHOTO CONTEST RULES
Send us your photos wearing our shirts and holding your catch. Each month one winner will be chosen and will receive $200 in merchandise of their choice from our online store. Photos will be gathered from the first day of the month until the last day of the month. On the 3rd of the following month, a winner will be announced and informed of their win. For example, the contest begins April 1st. Photos will be collected until April 30th. The winner of April will be announced May 3rd and the process continues in May for the winner to be announced on June 3rd. Winners will be able to order up to $200 in merchandise from our store with free shipping. Order details will be provided to each winner. A two week period will be allowed for us to make every attempt possible to contact the winner.

If you’re under 18, please get your parent’s permission to submit the photo and participate.
