Photo Guidelines
Submitting photographs for website posting
For consideration for web and social media posting, submitted photographs should be provided as jpg files at the highest resolution you can provide.

To be considered for print publication in the Pennsylvania Angler and Boater magazine and other Commission publications, please submit JPG or TIFF image files of at least 300 dpi or at a minimal width of 4,000 pixels. For photographic guidelines specific to submissions for Pennsylvania Angler and Boater magazine and other Commission printed publications, click here.

As stated on our fish story submission form, to post photos to our website and social media sites, or to include in one of our printed publications, we require permission acceptance from the person submitting the photograph. This includes providing permission for all individuals shown in the photograph, particularly those under 18 years-old. The submitter of the photograph assumes the responsibility that all individuals included in the photograph have been apprised of this submission and also provide the PFBC with the permission to post and publish.

All fishing photographs must depict fishing activities in locations where it is lawful to fish in Pennsylvania with all fish catches depicting lawful means and observing regulated fishing seasons and creel limits.

When depicting activities that include all types of boats, everyone aboard the boats must be wearing life jackets. Life jackets should fit properly and be zipped and buckled. Life jackets should suit the activity depicted. Persons on docks, and those boarding and leaving boats, should also be wearing life jackets.

Boats and equipment should be in optimal condition, including proper numbering and documentation. Boats should be equipped so that they meet all federal and Pennsylvania legal requirements.

Alcohol should not be shown aboard boats.

We prefer that boats show the current Pennsylvania registration.

Scenic shots must be taken in Pennsylvania.
