If chosen as a finalist, participants may then be contacted for a larger, higher resolution photo. If the participant is not able to provide this photo at the quality necessary, they will be disqualified, and another winner will be chosen. With each submission, participants must include the required form information.

Return of Photos
Any files submitted will not be returned. Please do not send the master file of your photo.

Deadline
Contest ends September 15, 2017. Any entries submitted after that time will not be considered.

Judging
All submissions will be posted on Omega Sea's website and Facebook page. Live voting will take place until close of the contest on 9/15/17. At that time, a panel of Omega Sea judges will review the photos. While the live vote tally will be their first consideration, Omega Sea will have the final say in selecting the finalists and all contest decisions are final. The winning photographs will be featured in the Omega One 2018 Calendar, so we must ensure that there is variety (i.e., no two of the same species, a mix of freshwater and saltwater). We must also ensure that no more than one winning photograph is selected per participant. 

Entries will be judged on the basis of photographic quality, and effectiveness in conveying the beauty and/or unique character of the fish. Entries that fail to comply with the Official Contest Rules will be disqualified.

Winners
The judging panel will select 13 finalists. If chosen as a finalist, participants may then be contacted for a larger, higher resolution photo. If the participant is not able to provide this photo at the quality necessary, they will be disqualified, and another winner will be chosen.  The winning parties will receive a credit of $250.00. They will be able to use this credit to purchase Omega One dry or frozen food products over the course of a year. Credit will not apply to any lighting products or bulk sizes. Winners will be notified by phone and/or email using the contact information submitted along with the photo. Winners must use the $250.00 credit within one year from the date of notification. After that time, the credit will be null and void. In addition to this credit, all winning photos will be featured in the annual Omega One Calendar with credit given to the photographer. All winners will receive a copy of the Omega One Calendar as well.
