Kayak Angler Editor and Contributor Win Journalism Awards

Wednesday, 30 May 2012

Rapid Media's Kayak Angler Magazine Editor, Paul Lebowitz, recently took two top honors at the annual Outdoor Writers Association of California conference in the 2012 Excellence in Craft Competition for Best Conference-related work and the Best Website categories while regular contributor, Allen Bushnell, picked up a second place for Magazine Feature.

Lebowitz has been at the forefront of the kayak fishing world for over a decade and is one of the most respected and polished writers in the industry.  As editor of Kayak Angler Magazine and kayakanglermag.com, his passion and dedication for the sport leaps out at readers.

"Paul is one of the most humble people I know," says Rapid Media's Dan Caldwell. "He won't want us to send this out but all the staff here think he deserves the recognition for his talent and hard work, so we're doing it anyway!"

True to form Paul insisted the focus be shifted to Kayak Angler contributor Allen Bushnell, who scored a big second place award in the hyper-competitive Magazine Feature category for his Spring 2011 story When the Hunter Becomes the Hunted.

See the award-winning work for Best Website at kayakanglermag.com and the Spring 2011 issue of Kayak Angler Magazine to read Bushnell's story.
