This week we asked everyone to send in pictures of BENT RODS. With overwhelming response this week we finally came to a winner. Congratulations to Christopher Echevarria from Land O Lakes, FL for winning this week. He was hooked up on an Amberjack. Coach behind him is Richard Echevarria and the photo was actually taken by Jay Riordan.
We have been getting a lot people asking, “How do I win Photo of the Week?”
Well, first submit a photo. We have a panel of 4-6 judges (varies each week) that collectively vote on the best photo submitted. We judge it based on the quality of the photo (no blurry out of focus or dark pictures) and also how the topic (species) is captured. These are the main 2 criteria. It is NOT a popularity contest although if it does get a lot of attention we pay more attention to it. Hope this helps and THANK YOU for submitting your photos.
