Voices for the outdoors
EVENTS AND AWARDS PROGRAMS
The California Watchable Wildlife Project celebrates the state’s wildlife and diverse habitats by acknowledging and elevating the value of wildlife viewing to benefit individuals, families, communities, and industries while fostering awareness and support for conservation and protection of wildlife and habitats.
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.
The annual OWAC conference is usually held in Spring each year. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic both 2020 and 2021 spring conferences were cancelled. Plans for our 2022 Spring Conference are underway and we feel sure it’s going to be a wonderful get together. Please subscribe to our newsletter for an announcement and other great information.
