Abstract. Let $C\subset \mathbb {P}^n$ be a smooth curve defined over $\mathbb {F}_q$ with degree $d$ and genus $g$. Here we give conditions on $d, g, q$ which assures the existence of an isomorphic linear projection into $\mathbb {P}^3$ (case $n\ge 4$) or a birational projection into $\mathbb {P}^2$ with only double points and defined over $\mathbb {F}_q$.
