Reporter Brett Prettyman has accomplished a first for The Salt Lake Tribune newsroom.
A Tribune environmental reporter, Prettyman has won our news organization’s first national television award for the "Utah Bucket List" program he produced last year in collaboration with KUED Channel 7.
Prettyman and KUED won second place in the television outdoor fun and adventure category of the annual Outdoor Writers Association of America Excellence in Craft Contest, the results of which were announced in a Tuesday news release.
In addition to the KUED production, Prettyman also wrote stories for sltrib.com and The Tribune’s print edition about Utah’s outdoor treasures that everyone should experience in their lifetimes. A second "Utah Bucket List" production is currently in development, and some of a second series of stories already have begun to appear in The Tribune.
Prettyman, as he always does, also fared well in the newspaper/news Website portion of the OWAA contest.
Newspaper/news site awards he received include:
• Second place in conservation and nature category for "Monitoring their miles per talon."
• First place in family participation/youth outdoor education category for "A lasting impression."
We’re proud of Prettyman’s coverage and happy that this national organization recognizes its worth, too.
As a side note, the OWAA board last month elected Prettyman to the join the OWAA Executive Committee, and he has begun a term as the organization’s second vice president. He’ll serve for three years, the final year as OWAA president.
The position recognizes Prettyman’s expertise and experience writing about the outdoors and demonstrates he is valued as a leader by outdoors writers around the nation.
