TF&G Editor-In-Chief  Chester Moore won four first-place awards and placed in five additional categories at the Press Club of Southeast Texas’ annual “Excellence In Media Awards.”

For the third consecutive year, Moore took first place in the independent blog category for “Higher Calling Wildlife”. Moore’s work extends beyond written journalism; he secured two first-place awards in video categories. His documentary “Flying Upstream,” a unique exploration of fly fishing, and “Higher Calling Wildlife: The Elevation,” which highlights his outreach efforts to children with special challenges in Colorado, both earned top honors. 

Moore produced, wrote and narrated these videos and also starred in them, collaborating with filmmaker Paul Fuzinski of Aptitude Outdoors (and TF&G columnist) to bring these stories to life.

“Paul is a great partner in these documentaries and working with him as well as videographer Seth Geib has been a way to get a pro-conservation message out there. These guys are top notch and I look forward to completing new documentaries we’re currently working on,” Moore said.
