The 2016 Drake Magazine 10th Anniversary Flyfishing Video Awards, presented by Simms, begins at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, with poolside cocktails at Orlando's Rosen Plaza Hotel.

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 Humor
  • Best Adventure (exotic, dangerous, far-flung)
  • Best Cinematography
  • Movie of the Year (must have been released after July 2015)

Lastly, we may have a couple "Special" awards that will appear in Orlando. But you’ll have to show up on July 13 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, 2016, at this address:
Drake Video Awards
