Sydney, Australia: Oakley Surfing Life Big Wave Gala Proves Outdoor Screenings not just for Cinema
It's officially a wrap! Entry period for the $35,000 Oakley Surfing Life Big Wave Awards is over and late entries are being posted on the site right now (see here for the goods).
The Awards are now in the hands of our staggeringly experienced and good-looking Judges, who will be whittling all the entries down to finalists in three divisions: Biggest Wave Ridden Biggest Paddle-in Ride Biggest Slab Photogs and filmers will also be eagerly awaiting the news, since they're in line for Shooter Awards based on the rider winners.
The finalists will be notified (and posted here) within the coming week, and the winners of those massive cash prizes for charging out of their noggins will be feted at our celebrity-packed Gala Presentation Evening at the Bondi Open-Air Cinema, Sydney, on February 17! Nuts. Watch the site for finalists, wrap-ups, post-event interviews, and of course a rogue's gallery of party attendees right after the Big Night.
