GFP Photo Contest now open

The South Dakota Game Fish & Parks is looking for the best pictures of 2024. Snapshot South Dakota is open now until July 17. This photography contest is focused on capturing the beauty of our outdoor resources.

This year’s categories are wildlife, landscapes, and fishing. You can submit up to three photos—all for one category, spread out between them all, or any combination.

Judging will consist of one “Best in Category” for each category and one overall “People’s Choice,” resulting in four winners. Deadline to submit photos for the summer period will be July 17. Voting for People’s Choice will begin in early August.

Winning photographers and photos will be showcased with appropriate credits in the South Dakota Conservation Digest, GFP social media platforms, and other GFP publications. Winning photos may also be selected for the cover of the South Dakota Hunting Handbook, Fishing Handbook, Boating Handbook, and Park Handbook.
