The Safari and Film Africa SA Fly Fishing Film and Photographic competition is being held between the dates of 1 September 2011 and 28 February 2012. It is open to all South African Residents and all material must be fly fishing related but can be footage taken fly fishing anywhere in the world.
There are heaps of prizes up for grabs, including winner’s prizes, prizes for the first 3entries received and lucky draw prizes! Winning sequences shall be uploaded to YOUTUBE. This event, the first of its kind in South Africa, will give budding film makers and the ordinary fly fisherman a chance to showcase their talents, adventures or something amazing they have captured whilst enjoying the art that is fly fishing.
The competition has 3 categories in the Film section and a single category in the Photographic section. Only entries into any of the film categories may enter a Photographic image and this will be limited to 2 images.
