Winners were selected based on YouTube videos created by the TV partners.
The winner of Nikon's most prestigious award is Tim Herald and James Brion of Nosler's Magnum TV. "It is sincerely an honor to win this year's MONARCH Award. Time and again, having high-quality Nikon Optics has made a difference," said James Brion, co-host of Nosler's Magnum TV.
