Angling Awareness Awards
Awards recognize writers who inspire people to participate in recreational fishing.
ASA established the Angling Awareness Awards to recognize writers who are inspiring people to get more involved in recreational fishing.
ASA will award up to six Angling Awareness Awards : three endemic awards, for pieces published in platforms that speak directly to anglers as well as outdoor lifestyle outlets; and three non-endemic awards, for pieces published in platforms not specifically geared to fishing or outdoor activities.
ASA created the Angling Awareness Awards to support the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation’s (RBFF) industry-wide effort to increase the current 49.1 million U.S. anglers to 60 million in 60 months, or by 2021.
