boot Düsseldorf launches video award

Splash-Drone, the winners’ prize
the winners’ prize (per category): a Splash Drone

Action-packed and exciting, or just romantic and beautiful: this is what they need to be – the video clips that water sports enthusiasts can enter for the new boot Düsseldorf video award.
Water sports enthusiasts can submit films that show them in action in or on the water. They should be uploaded to the special website (http://www.award.boot.de) for this competition by 15 December 2015. Detailed information about participation in the award as well as uploading instructions can be found there too. boot Director Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel said, “We want really authentic clips of water sports enthusiasts which show that our sport is beautiful and, above all, great fun to try too.” In line with the boot Düsseldorf motto of “Experience 360° water sports”, the videos should demonstrate the entire panorama of water sports activities.

The award is being presented in the categories of sailing, motorboating (including jet skiing and inflatable boating), yachting, diving, fishing, paddling, windsurfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding and stand-up paddling as well as family holidays either by, on or under the water.

boot Düsseldorf has come up with something very special to serve as the winners’ prizes: a Splash Drone supplied by Multikopter. This quadcopter is not just rain- and splash-proof; it is also completely water-tight, so that it can start directly out of the water. This makes the revolutionary Splash Drones pretty much a must-have for any water sports enthusiast, since they enable him or her to film every detail of his or her sport. These super drones will be on show in the Water Pixel World at boot Düsseldorf from 23 to 31 December 2016. The entrants who come in second to fifth in all the categories will also receive attractive water sports-related prizes. Winners will receive their prizes at a ceremony held during boot Düsseldorf on Sunday, 24 January 2016.


There is another prize for the most attractive and exciting clips: they will be part of the new advertising campaign in which boot Düsseldorf 2017 will be publicised. The most distinctive pictures will be chosen as poster and advertisement motifs! Before the biggest boat trade fair in the world starts, these pictures will be used to advertise the event in and around Düsseldorf as well as in international water sports magazines. The QR code printed on them will enable water sports fans to access the winning video directly and to experience the fascination of the sport live.
