Two winners, fresh and saltwater species fish finish, will be awarded the Abel Reel of their choice, showcasing their own winning design, announced Jeff Patterson, director of sales of the California tackle manufacturer. There will also be one junior division winner for all artists ages 15 and under at the time of submission.
Abel will select the Finalists, up to ten pieces of artwork in each category, and picture them on the company’s Facebook page. The Finalists in each category will be open for vote over a two month period during October and November, 2013. Each Facebook “like” will be considered one vote.
Fresh, saltwater, and junior division winning designs will then go into production, with the three winning artists each receiving a free reel of their choice.
