The 7th Annual Drake Flyfishing Video Awards, presented by Simms, will be held 8pm Thursday night, August 16, 2012, at Atlantis Casino, Reno, Nevada.
The Idea: Surfing, skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, kayaking—for several years, all of these sports have had video elements—and video awards shows—that go far beyond the instructional elements to help showcase and celebrate the fun, creative side of sport. That's what this event is about. Plus, it seemed like a good idea for a party.
The time limit: Your video MUST be no more than five minutes long (not counting credits). It can be as short as you like. Other than that, there are no rules to this contest other than you must own the footage if you plan to present it as yours, and the entry must not have been posted prior to awards night on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, or any other public site on the Interwebs.
Send all entries, in the highest resolution possible, to:
The Drake Video Contest
PO Box 11546
Denver, CO 80211.
All entries MUST be received by Wednesday, August 1st, 2012. A small committee will select the TEN BEST ones, and those will be put together to make up the hour-long show. A committee of judges will then select awards for four categories: Best Humor, Best Fishing, Best Story, and Best Overall Film—the Best Overall Film will be awarded $1,000 the night of the event. A movie can win more than one award.
