OWAC CRAFT AWARDS 2019

OWAC CRAFT AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENT

Why do we do it? For the sheer love of the art? For the money?

Some of the impetus that drives us to continue in our quest for publication is the pride we feel at seeing our work honed to perfection and shared with all the world.

OWAC strives to recognize the superior work created by our membership through the annual OWAC Craft Awards and the 2019 contest is now open submissions. Download and print out the rules and the submissions form and send in your entries for judging.

The final date for entry post mark is February 15, 2019, so start pulling together those published works you feel are worth of praise and award. No matter what your medium might be, you could achieve that highest honor, having your entry selected as work by the 2019 OWAC Writer of the Year.

Camera Phone Primer and Composing Better Pictures

by John Poimiroo

Not taking pictures on an assignment because you don’t have a camera with you is no longer an excuse. Just about everyone carries a camera phone these days. The images taken by today’s camera phones are of higher quality than the film cameras most of us carried 20 years ago. Apple’s latest iPhone, the 11, has three lenses, optical zoom and delivers 12 megapixels in resolution. Even most older cell phones take pictures good enough for digital media.

Feb/March 2020 Newsletter

Along with the beginning of a new decade, 2020 also marks OWAC’s 35th anniversary. As you may already know, OWAC was formed in 1985 when a small group of California members of the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) decided to form a state organization.

August - September Newsletter

Well, it’s the end of July and normally your OWAC conference organizers would be hard at work right now putting together our annual fall conference itinerary. Unfortunately, the stars just did not align for us this year when the destination we’d hoped for fell through. We are, however, moving forward with planning for our 2020 spring conference. Hopefully, it will be in the Bay Area, we are just waiting on a signed contract now.
