This program designed to recognize excellence in the field of outdoor journalism and media communications by media professionals on topics related to the outdoors. Given annually by OWAC, these awards represent the best achievements in 15 categories as established by the OWAC Board of Directors.

This awards program sees three big changes this year.

  • We’ve streamlined the program by reducing the number of categories to 15.
  • We are giving cash awards to top places in each category.
  • We are running the program on a digital platform.
