October is National Seafood Month, which means there's no better time to enjoy the abundance of sustainable seafood from Alaskan waters. This year, the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) is celebrating with the inaugural "Show Us Your Alaska Seafood" Instagram photo contest. Seafood lovers from across the country can show off their culinary skills by preparing a dish with Alaska seafood, snapping a picture, and then tagging it with #alaskaseafood and @alaskaseafood. Running from October 1 to October 28, the contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers. The creator of the best photo will be announced by November 7 and will take home a GoPro camera and a winter's supply of seafood!
