2018 Winner

Showcase your commercial or short video in front of 5,000-plus viewers. We are looking for more than a few pretty pictures strung together — there should be visuals that entertain and creatively tell a story about the Okanagan that evokes community pride, call to action or an emotional response. The festival is open to professionals and wannabe film makers.

The festival entry deadline will be Aug. 4, 2021
Entrants will also have the opportunity to have their work showcased by Tourism Penticton through their upcoming social media campaigns

Submissions are to be family-friendly — TV commercial content (no nudity, swearing, excessive violence, etc.)

Each submission will grant the prize sponsor (Tourism Penticton) the non-exclusive use of all or part of their submission for tourism and/or regional promotion

  1. Liquid Libations: any commercial or short film concerning Okanagan wine, craft beer, distillery, cidery or juice/soda
  2. Okanagan Experience: any commercial or short film showcasing an Okanagan experience including arts, culture or tourism
