The final tally was far too close to make the call.
Many of our 2013 Canoe & Kayak Awards‘ nominees were neck and neck at this morning’s scheduled close to voting. So we extended voting for one final week. Now is the last chance to learn about—and vote for—the paddlers, expeditions, adventures, filmmakers and paddling organizations whom you think should win above all others. You’ve got until midnight (PST) on Monday, July 8.
This year's categories include: Male and Female Paddler of the Year, Expedition of the Year and ShredReady Expedition Grant, Photo of the Year presented by Body Glove Footwear, Film Achievement Award, Paddle With Purpose, the Spirit of Adventure Award, and Lifetime Achievement.
The second annual Canoe & Kayak Awards presented by Verizon is a production of Canoe & Kayak, recognizing excellence in the sport of paddling, as voted by the paddling community. The criteria couldn't be simpler: Paddlers vote for the athletes, expeditions, films and causes that most inspire them to seek out their own adventures. Stay tuned to CanoeKayak.com as winners will be announced live from the Aug. 1 ceremony in Salt Lake City.
The PHOTO OF THE YEAR PRESENTED BY BODY GLOVE FOOTWEAR runs through July 14. The photo contest is hosted on Facebook to find three photographers from our audience. They will then compete with the seven remaining photographers picked by C&K staff as finalists. Gallery prints of the finalists will be displayed at the award show, where attendees will choose the winner.
