Annual  Hunting, Fishing & Photography Awards

Each year all members of the Rimbey Fish & Game have the opportunity to win awards for these select categories: Hunting, Fishing & Photography. Through different events we determine the winners, who are then awarded prizes at our Annual Banquet & Awards event annually in March. The annual competition runs from January 1st to December 31st each year. The deadline for receiving entries for hunting is the day of our Antler Measuring (each December) 

and February 15th of the following year for fish & photography. Memberships must be purchased prior to August 24th each year to be eligible for the awards.

- Hunting -

Our Annual Antler Measuring is when and how we determine the award winners for each main hunting category, which are any Alberta trophy taken with Rifle, Archery, Blackpowder or by a Youth from the most recent hunting season. Members bring their trophy's to this event to be scored and from there they are then entered in for our club awards & also the Interclub Awards.

Must have purchased your membership prior to August 24th of that year.

- Fishing -

Members can send in their Alberta caught fish entries any time throughout the year by emailing a completed AFGA Score Sheet along with their pictures to   [email protected].​

Effective January 01, 2018, all fish entries will be measured by length, as per provincial regulations, encouraging catch and release. Measurement by weight is optional.

- Photography -

Since 2018, we have included our Facebook page followers in the voting process for our Photography Category. We post albums of each category, with a two week deadline for voting. Followers 'like' their favorite photo in each album and once voting is closed, we tally the 

photos to determine which photos win.

 Entries can be submitted by email or private message our Facebook page by Feb 15th.
