All candidates must fill two requirements:
1. The nominees have inspired thousands of Californians to take part in the great outdoors and/or conservation.
2. The nominees must have taken part in a paramount scope of adventures.
Anybody can nominate an entrant. Entrants can nominate themselves. Entrees must include a 200 to 250-word biography or will be disqualified.
Voting is conducted in early winter by past winners, the Circle of Chiefs, and leaders in outdoors media, government and industry, who vote anonymously, free of faction. The annual awards are announced in January.
