Boot Düsseldorf Competition for Water Sports Video Clips

Boat Show

For Immediate Release | September 2015


The organizers of boot 2016, International Boat Show Düsseldorf (January 23 - 31, 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany) launched a competition for the best water sports video clips. Water sports enthusiasts can submit videos showing them in action in or on the water and upload them at (select “English” from the pull down menu) by December 15, 2015 to compete for the new boot Düsseldorf video award. “We want really authentic clips of water sports enthusiasts which show that our sport is beautiful and, above all, great fun to try, too,” stated boot 2016 Director Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel. In line with the boot Düsseldorf motto “Experience 360° water sports”, the videos should reflect the entire panorama of water sports activities.

The award will be presented in the categories sailing, motor boating (including jet skiing and inflatable boating), yachting, diving, fishing, paddling, windsurfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding and stand-up paddling as well as family vacation by, on or under water. The winners in each category will receive a very special prize: a Splash Drone supplied by Multikopter. This quadcopter is not just rain and splash-proof but also completely water-proof and can therefore start directly out of the water. These drones will be on show in the Water Pixel World at boot 2016. The second to fifth place winners in all the categories will also receive attractive water sports-related prizes. The winners will receive their awards at a ceremony held during boot Düsseldorf on Sunday, January 24, 2016.

The most attractive and exciting video clips will also be part of the new international advertising campaign for the 2017 staging of boot: the most distinctive images will be chosen for posters and advertisements and with the QR code, water sports fans will be able to access the winning video directly.
