The 2017 Drake Magazine 11th Annual Flyfishing Video Awards, presented by Simms, begins at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 12 at Orlando's Rosen Plaza Hotel (Ballroom C). Please join us for the pre-party and some poolside cocktails at 6 p.m.

This annual "Best Of" event includes multiple categories and nominees, with winners being announced live, onstage, in Orlando.

All awards will be chosen from whatever body of work has been produced during the past 12 months.

Best of the Web includes those many short films that do get posted online and that many people might have seen, but not on the big screen.

Here are the other awards categories:

  • Best Fishing, Saltwater
  • Best Fishing, Freshwater
  • Best Conservation
  • Best Story
  • Best Adventure (exotic, dangerous, far-flung)
  • Best Cinematography
  • Movie of the Year (must have been released after July 2016)

Lastly, we may have a couple "Special" awards that will appear in Orlando. But you’ll have to show up on July 12 to see what those are.

If you’re going to physically submit a hard drive or zip drive, we need to receive it before the Fourth of July, 2017, at this address:
