Documentary filmmaker Seth Breedlove has been named the recipient of the  prestigious 'Golden Yeti' award for outstanding work in the field of  cryptozoology.

Presented by the International Cryptozoology Museum, the award aims to honor those who have made significant contributions to the field.

In the span of just a few years, Breedlove has directed four acclaimed  documentaries on legendary cryptozoological cases and his production  company, Small Town Monsters, has a hand in several more films slated to be released next year.

Detailing the noteworthy nature of Breedlove's work, esteemed cryptozoologist Loren Coleman observed that "he is using new media to save the legacy of culturally important  Middle America cases that would have been lost in the near future."
