OMG – ITS AWARDS NIGHT! The 2018 N.U.T.T.E.R Awards

Oscars? What Oscars?! The only game in town is this call for nominations for the 2018 awards for Mammalwatching’s most Notable, Unique, Tantalizing, Tenacious and Enlightening Reports: The N.U.T.T.E.R awards (thank you Charles Foley).

All trip reports covering 2018 on are eligible for an award. Please comment below or write me ( with your nominations for reports/reporters under any or all of the following categories before 7 March.

In the middle of March we will open a poll to select the winners. I’m pretty sure the rest of the world must be as excited as I am!

The NUTTER Award Categories are:

  1. Best Trip (Independent)
  2. Best Trip (Guided)
  3. Most Pioneering Trip
  4. Most Informative Trip Reporter
  5. Best Mega Mammal
  6. Best Obscure Mammal (i.e. a species almost no one has heard of)
  7. Best Close Encounter
  8. Most Frustrating Miss (or partial miss). This does not have to come from a trip report and we will accept short anecdotes for this one, the more painful the better.

Thanks to Ben Schwienhart for his help on the categories. Just to be clear there is no prize other than the honour of winning. This is like getting a Knighthood from the British Monarch. Only more important. Obviously.
