Pradinuk praised

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - DESTINATIONS -

RON Pradinuk, a travel writer for the Win­nipeg Free Press, re­cently took home three bronze awards from the North Amer­i­can Travel Jour­nal­ism As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual awards pre­sen­ta­tions. The awards are pre­sented in a num­ber of cat­e­gories re­lated to the travel in­dus­try. Awards are given to pub­li­ca­tions, travel writ­ers and pho­tog­ra­phers whose work was rep­re­sented in print, elec­tronic and on­line me­dia from Oc­to­ber 2014 to Septem­ber 2015. Pradinuk was rec­og­nized for a two-part se­ries about Palm Springs, a col­umn on med­i­cal tourism and a travel tips piece. “While be­ing rec­og­nized by your peers is al­ways nice,” said Pradinuk, “the emails and com­ments I get from read­ers bring me both the great­est sat­is­fac­tion and mo­ti­va­tion to keep find­ing in­ter­est­ing travel top­ics to write about.” Pradinuk re­ceived honourable men­tions for a pair of other col­umns he wrote. Free Press des­ti­na­tions editor Willy Wil­liamson con­grat­u­lated Pradinuk. “Ron Pradinuk is a walk­ing en­cy­clo­pe­dia of travel knowl­edge,” said Wil­liamson. “Al­though he is a world trav­eller, his ad­vice and in­sight al­ways hits home.”
