Arizona Game and Fish garners conservation communications honors

The Arizona Game and Fish Department received national recognition for its conservation communications efforts by taking one first-place and two second-place awards at the annual Association for Conservation Information (ACI) conference in Nashville, Tenn. on July 17.

Two articles published in Arizona Wildlife Views magazine were selected for honors. Julie Hammonds, the magazine’s associate editor, won first place in the “Parks, Historical or Cultural Magazine Article” category for her article entitled “Watchable Wildlife: Ramsey Canyon Preserve.”  Rory Aikens, public information officer, garnered a second-place award in the “Fisheries Magazine Article” category with his article, “A Mountain Journey: Finding the Hidden Essence of Fishing.”

The department’s Hunting Highlights e-newsletter won second place for design and information in the “Big Idea, Small Budget” category.

ACI is a nonprofit association of information and education professionals representing state, federal and Canadian agencies and private conservation organizations. It provides a forum for communication professionals to exchange new ideas, concepts, and practices that promote wildlife conservation.
