The honorees were selected for awards in the association’s 2018 Excellence in Craft competition.

Flores earned recognition in the Magazine Regular Feature (greater than 1,000 words) category with a third-place finish for “Hunting with the Carver”. He also earned a third-place finish in the Photo category with “The Color of Spring”.
The Excellence in Craft contest, which recognizes excellence within various categories of outdoor-related communications, has been held continuously since 1945. Member entries for the 2018 competition were judged anonymously by members of the Northwest Outdoor Writers Association.
