A photograph taken from a spot familiar to anyone in Kodiak who’s ever taken a few minutes to watch the fishing boats go by from the spit near Oscar’s Dock has taken top honors in the photographs of boats in the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute’s annual photography contest.

The image shows the fishing vessel Alitak bathed in a golden winter light as it navigates the channel outside the entrance to Saint Paul Harbor. 

The photo was taken by Glenn Seavers. Another, taken by Hailey Thomspon took first place in the “Throwback Photo” division. Other categories include best scenic, humor, fish, family or kid, and best action photo. Marie Gunderson of Sand Point won the grand prize with her artistic photo of a fish eye.

We’ve got the photo of the Alitak on our website, You can see the rest at
