OWAC Awards To Our Own Gary Graham – That Baja Guy

Each year, the OWAC surveys a large body of submitted work from a variety of outdoor writers and adventure media communicators.

The Outdoor Writers Association of California or OWAC is the leading organization of professional outdoor media communicators in the western region and they have recently recognized nearly two-dozen recipients in their annual Excellence in Craft Awards.

BD Outdoors won an award for Best Outdoor Medium so congrats to the entire BD Team!

The awards program acknowledges distinction and professionalism in reportage of outdoor recreation, sports and travel, in both news and feature categories; in the print, web and broadcast media. Entries must have been published or aired during the prior (2018) calendar year, and are subsequently judged by a panel of media professionals and editors.

Gary Graham, the BD Outdoors Baja Editor and lovingly known as “That Baja Guy”, not only brings us weekly fishing reports from around the Baja peninsula and Central America, but he also delves into the rich history of Baja’s fishing and the people and families that have developed it through the years.  He also focuses on serious conservation issues and current regulatory changes and requirements for visiting anglers.

Gary Graham received second place in the Best Outdoor Magazine Feature and BD Outdoors won third place in Best Outdoor Medium. Gary was also recognized for work which promotes the conservation of fish, wildlife and other outdoor resources, with the John Reginato Conservation Award.

Congrats Gary on recognition of your hard work and expertise!

Check out all of the work of “That Baja Guy”, Gary Graham.
