Submission & Scoring of Fish
CKA follows Catch-Photo-Release (CPR) protocols. We encourage all anglers to practice and learn safe and proper landing techniques so as to minimize injury to the fish (or angler). Equally as important, anglers must submit a clear photograph with the fish correctly displayed to the tournament judges in order to receive credit for the catch.
CKA has adopted the Tourney X site to upload live tournament photographs. All participating anglers are required to create Tourney X accounts (the basic account is free of charge). Anglers must register for tournaments and upload photos in the correct manner. An angler who uses a digital camera must still have a TourneyX account as the judges will manually upload photographs. If you do not have an account, your fish will not be scored! There are no exceptions: every angler must pay the TourneyX tournament registration fee and create an account.
We strongly recommend that anglers practice use of the site. The TourneyX tutorial video is also useful. You can view it here: http://tourneyx.com/video_tutorial/
