Representing & Supporting Shetland’s Fishermen

SFA hosts photography competition for new book
December 13th 2021

Shetland Fishermen’s Association is inviting keen photographers to submit images showing fishing activity around the isles.

The winning entry in the competition will be included in a new book to be published early next year to mark the 75th anniversary of the association’s founding. The SFA has decided not to produce a yearbook this year.

Sheila Keith, SFA policy officer, said: “We would like to draw on the fantastic photographic skills that are so evident in Shetland, not least among our own fishermen, and are looking for a really cracking image for inclusion in the book.

“To enable us to produce this book early next year, we will not be issuing a yearbook as we usually do in the run up to Christmas this year – that will return later next year.”

Entries should be creative, well-composed and taken with a good quality camera (20 megapixels or more) and not a phone.

Key technical specifications are a resolution of 300 dpi and a file size of greater than 2MB to ensure the image is suitable for publication.

Please send entries to Sheila at [email protected]

The closing date is 31st January 2022.
