Full length film winners are decided by our judging panel:

Ben Player - I've watched action sports movies since I was a kid, I remember watching all of the old Krusty Demons of Dirt, Momentum, and No Friends and thinking to myself I want to be like those guys and push the boundaries and to have the opportunity to be on a film one day. Since those days I have been lucky enough to win a few world titles and to see many successes, including being in the movies like the ones I used to watch. Now, I have the opportunity to be on the other side of the screen again to be a judge for this years Yew.TV film festival which is really cool to see the amazing movies and performances that crew are getting up to these days, and also the opportunity to be inspired once again like I did when I was a kid. As a judge, I think that is one main factor that I am going to be looking for in the entrants movies, I want to be inspired by the performance or production of the clip. I want to see something that makes me go 'Oh my god, I want to do that, I want to do something crazy like that guy did.'

Otis Carey - I'm Looking for good music to compliment nice lifestyle clips as well as action clips. I like to see a lot of emotion captured whether its with light tones or a badass action clip. I'm also a big fan of a nice lens flare. Stuff like this I'll be looking for. Having my dream job as a professional free surfer means I have one of my greatest achievements, my other greatest achievement is my son.
