Entry #18 Origen, by Gonzalo Robert (Chile) takes second place and we have a tie for third between #08 South Island Trip, by Zack Mutton (New Zealand) and A Kind of Happiness, by Loic Baillard (Italy).
With film makers from the four corners of the world, the Short Film of the Year Awards have now reached the international status we aimed for when we created this contest, and is seen as the reference for film producers around the world, and TV broadcasters alike when it comes down to paddlesports film production.
A high level of quality made it really hard for the judges and voters alike to decide on who will win. A close call to say the least.
NB: 50% is based on a panel of whitewater and filmmaking professionals, 50% based on online votes.
The jury: Mira Kodada (Cz), Clay Wright (Usa), Anna Bruno (Usa), Mylo Nicholas (Uk), Arthur Bernot (France).
