Alaska Bearfest

Due to COVID-19, we have made some adjustments to the annual BearFest photo contest. The contest is now held online!

 We encourage everyone to post your very best Alaska bear photos to our new Facebook page! (We will provide the link to the 2021 photo contest closer to the event).

The People’s Choice Award will go to the outstanding bear photo that receives

the most likes. How very millennial of us, right?

When the contest opens, please post your favorite Alaska bear photos to the FB page (with a little info about the photo—location, date, etc.) and share the page so more can participate! We will  keep the contest open until Saturday, July 31st and we will announce the winning photo on Sunday, August 1st. The photographer will receive this year’s BearFest T-shirt (design coming soon), a few cans of smoked salmon and maybe some other goodies! If you prefer to send in your photos anonymously or you don’t have Facebook, send your photos to us via email ( and we will post on your behalf.

Happy posting! We can’t wait to see all your bears.
