The Nisga’a Fish and Wildlife Department is happy to announce the winners of our 2014-15 Art Contest! Our judges were faced with tough decisions, in choosing winners from the many creative and beautiful entries received. All submissions were judged on their originality, connection with the theme, and artistic merit. All the entries were great, but in the end we had to choose some winners.

Do YOU enjoy drawing and Painting?  Nisga'a Fisheries and Wildlife will be conducting an original art piece contest with two themes:

  • Kindergarten to Grade 8: What will fishing be like in the future?
  • Grade 9-12: What does sustainable fisheries management mean to you?
