Quality Deer Management Association is seeking nominations for QDMA’s Communicator of the Year Award, also known as the “Signpost Award.” The Signpost Award was created to recognize journalists and communicators who have demonstrated an outstanding effort to disseminate accurate, sound guidance on deer management, habitat management, and wildlife stewardship that aids or complements QDMA’s pursuit of its mission. If you know a fellow journalist who is deserving of this award, please take the time to let us know.
In addition to the criteria mentioned, the recipient must have an established record of journalistic integrity and ethics as well as unquestioned commitment to the betterment of wildlife resources. The Signpost Award is given on the basis of cumulative career achievements or outstanding individual projects, such as a book, article or video.
