Ozzie Wright Has Entered Reelers, Have You?
Article provided by our publishing partners Surfing World Magazine with editor Vaughan Blakey.
Ozzie Wright, the freesurfing Worzel Gummidge, has thrown his top hat into the ring for a piece of the $20,000 on offer in Reelers, Surfing World’s first Short Surf Film Competition.
Oz got together with his good mate Andrew Christie, did a morning of slip sliding around the Northern Beaches on his four foot finless rabbit’s foot, cut the footage into a clip under three minutes long and submitted it to the Reelers home page. EASY PEAZY! The whole thing took him less than half a day to do and if the judges deem his efforts worthy then he could be walking away with real cash money!
So what’s stopping you from entering? Haven’t got a camera? Use your phone! Haven’t got a surfboard? Use an air mattress! Haven’t got surf? Make your movie out of Lego! Haven’t got a clue? Jump on the home page and scope some of the ideas already out there! You can do this. You can win!

Youth – Presented by Goal Zero and Judged by Jack McCoy – 1st Prize $5000

There’s also a $5000 Coastalwatch Plus Audience Award for the film voted as crowd favourite.
