More awards for Outdoor Canada writers

I have some more great news to report on the magazine journalism awards front. On Saturday, Outdoor Canada Fishing Editor Gord Pyzer garnered two National Communications Awards from the Outdoor Writers of Canada for his work in our magazine, while contributor Sherri Canjar picked up one honour.

The awards, sponsored by Shimano Canada, were presented during a banquet at the annual OWC conference, held this year in Peterborough, Ontario. Here’s how we fared:


  • 3rd place (Magazine Column): “Be the baitfish,” by Gord Pyzer (October/November 2008)
  • 3rd place (Magazine Feature, Fishing): “Hardwater action guide,” by Gord Pyzer (Winter 2009)
  • 3rd place (Magazine Feature, Other): “Cattails: The edible plants that keep on giving,” by Sherri Canjar (Summer 2008)

Congrats to Gord and Sherri!
