The Fishermen’s Mission has teamed up with Fishing News to launch a nationwide search for the perfect photograph for its 2016 Christmas card, offering you the chance to give your photography the recognition it deserves.

“The Fishermen’s Mission is delighted to be working with Fishing News to find our next Christmas card design for 2016,” said Chris Hirst from the Fishermen’s Mission. “This is the first year that we’ve opened this up to the public, and we’re very excited to see the entries.”

Images should reflect the fishing industry; showing fishing ports, boats ashore or at sea, equipment or people, keeping in mind that the scene should be suitable as a Christmas card. Please also give a description of your photograph.

Send your entries (up to four per person) to photocomp@fishermensmission.org.uk before the deadline of 1 April, 2016. Images should be at least 1MB – see the rules below for more information on image size requirements.

An experienced panel will judge the entries within two weeks of the closing date, and the Fishermen’s Mission will contact the winner within 21 days.
