DEADLINE: OWAA Writing Contests

Event Date: 
January 15, 2022

The Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) recognizes talented and dedicated outdoor communicators of all ages through annual contests and awards. OWAA membership is required.

OWAA’s annual Excellence in Craft (EIC) Contest allows the association’s members to enter their best works from the previous year. There are multiple categories for various media and subject matter and each category is judged by an independent and expert panel. Winners are announced during the annual conference, where certificates and cash prizes are awarded. The final book deadline was in early December, while all other submissions should meet the deadline of Jan. 15, 2022.

To encourage students to sharpen their abilities to communicate the outdoor experience, annual awards are being offered as part of the Norm Strung Youth Writing Contest and the OWAA Student Photo Contest. Cash prizes and a yearlong OWAA Student Membership will be granted in both categories, split over two age groups — high school (grades 11-12) and college. Deadline: Jan 31, 2022.
