I took a Photo of a River at a State park. In the River were two Fly Fishermen can't really make out there Faces. I am wanting to use it in a Photo Contest for a calender if it is picked you get $25.00. Do I need a Release ? Thanks Ross

"Cant' really make out there faces".

That's the key. Could their friends or family tell it was them if they saw the photo?

Unless you are selling the photograph commercially (entering an amateur contest is usually not considered a commercial sale, even if there is a monetary prize,) generally the answer is no. Does the contest specify that a release is required?
