Telling Our Stories – and YOURS

video collage

We filmed “Day in Our Bay” almost three years ago, asking our Shareholders to share life in a single day in Bristol Bay. Your input led to the creation of a 15-minute documentary film that was shown in film festivals across the country as well as a series of video shorts.

What’s been happening in our Bay since then? How’s fishing season going? Have you been to any recent gatherings or events? What’s summer like where you live? Do you have a favorite recipe to share? What are some of your Native or family traditions?

We want to hear from you! We’re seeking updates from those of you who appeared in our videos and also from anyone living in the region who would like to share stories, photos and artwork.

Each week, we’ll select a “Shareholder Story of the Week” post.

 You have several ways you can submit your story:

  1. Upload your photo or art with a brief caption to our Facebook Page sharing your story.
  2. Tweet @dayinourbay with your photo or art. (Make sure to follow @dayinourbay so we can contact you)
  3. Pin an image on Pinterest and caption it including @dayinourbay so we see it. (Make sure to follow us on Pinterest, and we’ll respond in the comment of the pin with instructions if we select your Pin to feature.)
  4. Email us at with your story, recipe, image or art.

You can submit as many times as you’d like.

We’ll get in touch with you if we select your submission. Make sure to follow us on the appropriate social networks so we can be in touch. Then we’ll send you a few brief interview questions if you’d like to be interviewed or simply verify that you’re giving us permission to repost what you’ve shared to a global audience.

We look forward to hearing from you on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or through email!
