Florida Fish Art Contest

The Fish Art Contest, inspired by a 5th grader's homework assignment, has grown into an international competition introducing youth to the wonders of fishing and the outdoors. Wildlife Forever organizes the competition each year and coordinates their efforts with host states around the country. 

How Can I Participate?

The Fish Art Contest is open to all youth in grades K-12 (ages 5-18). To participate each youth will need to submit a completed entry form, an original illustration of a fish of your choice, and a one-page creative writing submission (required for grades 4-12). The contest has concluded for 2022 and will reopen in November for the 2023 judging.
