2021 Submissions

The Third Annual Sailing Film Festival was help virtually on December 12th, 2021. With so many incredible submissions (nearly double the amount of last year!), it was very difficult to choose the winners.

The Oregon Youth Sailing Foundation Board of Directors voted on a scale from 0-5 for each of the following categories and the winners were chosen based on their total score. Each category had 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash winners of $1000, $500 and $250, respectively, plus a social media prize of $250.

Thank you so much for putting out this opportunity. It was a great experience.

Thanks for putting together such an awesome virtual film festival!

It is such a good way to promote sailing, and I had so much fun making my video and also looking at all of the other films! I can’t wait for next year, and will definitely tell as many people about it as I can!
