Short Film Competition sponsored by Spika


Voting is now open for the People’s Choice. Vote Now!

A showcase of short films that celebrates hunting and the culture that surrounds it, from the camaraderie to the solitude, the lows of the near misses to the highs of successes. And everything in between. Be it Big Game, Water Fowl, Upland Bird, Small Game and Freshwater Fishing.

If you’ve made a hunting/freshwater fishing short film in the last two years or have footage of an epic hunting adventure you’ve had, be it your first hunt, or you’re a seasoned pro, this is your chance to share your adventure with the hunting community and win some amazing prizes.
