The International Academy of the Visual Arts recognized the Take Me Fishing campaign website with two 2011 Silver Davey Awards for creative excellence, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation announced.

TakeMeFishing.org received an award in the lifestyle category, and its online community, Fishington, was honored in the community category.

“We are honored to once again receive recognition from IAVA for our work that's inspiring people to get out on the water and experience the joys of boating and fishing firsthand,” RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. “We continually strive to enhance the site and to look for ways to offer boating and fishing 'how to' and 'where to' information when and where our visitors want it.”

The Davey Awards is an international award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms worldwide. The 2011 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries.
