We love receiving your Summer Sailstice Videos, so this year we're hosting another Video Competition. 

We'll be looking for a 1-minute video that showcases your Summer Sailstice Celebration. But this year we're adding a little twist. We want you to include a shot of you holding a copy of the day's newspaper or a smart phone with the date June 24 or June 25 showing.  You can put it in the begining, middle, end, or anywhere inbetween. Extra points are given to those who are creative with their newspaper (though please, no 'head' shots) 

Another change this year is that we're awarding prizes in two Categories:

1. Judges Choice - We'll be looking for videos that demonstrate the joys of sailing in every form, whether underway, preparing to untie, or coming back to the dock, or any combination. We'll also be judging your creativity and skills in editing your clip into the 1-minute time frame. Sound fair?

...and just in case you're worried about the competition, we're also awarding a 'Sailors' Choice' award. 

2. Sailors' Choice - When your video is uploaded, we'll be sharing it with the rest of the Summer Sailstice community for their input. The clip with the most votes will be the winner!

So charge up your cameras and start practising. You'll have until July 15th to submit your entries.

'What about prizes?' I hear you ask. 

Keep an eye out on this page for updates. As we finalize our Summer Sailstice Prize list for this year, we'll allocate prizes to each category. 

Here's a peek at last year's first place video:
