The Redmap Team, 26 Sep 2016.

Fishers see amazing things and capture great moments in pursuit of their catch. The Redmap Fisher Photo Competition gives you the opportunity to share and celebrate your favourite fishing memories, with great prizes on offer for two winners in each category! Photos from all types of fishers are warmly welcomed.

The Redmap Fisher Photo Competition is a celebration of the wonderful moments and memories collected by fishers in pursuit of their catch - from the catch itself, to the company shared and scenery experienced along the way. As we head toward summer and the weather warms up, our Fisher Photo Competition is a great opportunity to share fishing memories that will boost excitement for upcoming adventures on the water.  

The Redmap Team invites fishers to submit their favourite photos to one, or all, of our three great categories, with generous prizes on offer. In each category prizes will be awarded to the winners of the People's Choice Award and Redmap's Choice Award – that’s a total of six prizes up for grabs!


Entries close Friday 14th October

Online voting period Monday 17th October – Sunday 30th October

Winners announced Monday 31st October



1. Catch!

All the time and effort that goes into locating and landing your catch is ultimately met with sheer satisfaction - submit your best photo of a unique or prized catch.

2. Fishing and Family

There’s nothing quite like sharing the fun and enjoyment of fishing with family – submit your favourite family fishing photo.

3. Ahh the Serenity

It’s not always about landing the big one, fishing also takes us to some of the most scenic locations nature has to offer – submit your best photo that combines fishing and scenery.



Two great prizes are up for grabs in each category. These will be awarded to the winners of the People's Choice Award and Redmap's Choice Award.

People's Choice Award – $200 gift card at either Boating Camping Fishing OR Bunnings Warehouse (the choice is yours).
