Reelers has arrived! Surfing World’s very first short surf film competition is now on with $20,000 in cash prizes up for grabs. Open to all residents of Australia and judged by the most influential filmmakers of the past five decades, Reelers will showcase new works from the most unique, visionary and rising talents in the surf community today.

Says Surfing World Editor Vaughan Blakey. “Surfing has never experienced a more exciting, open-minded and creative time. At just about every beach in the country people are free to surf how they want on what they want and, more often than not, they have a handful of talented friends filming, cutting and uploading these sessions that might previously have only lived on in exaggerated car park stories. Our goal with Reelers is to not only give these films a home base from which to be showcased and shared around but to also reward those filmmakers who bring something vibrant and entirely captivating to the table as well."

Reelers will feature three creative categories including Story (presented by Corona and judged by Taylor Steele), Action (presented by Nikon and judged by Kai Neville) and Youth (restricted to filmmakers 21-and-under, presented by Goal Zero and judged by Jack McCoy). In addition there will also be an Audience Award (presented by CoastalwatchPlus) to be decided by online voting during the course of the event.

Reelers entries can be uploaded between May 1 to September 1, 2015. For more information and how to enter Reelers click here.
