HOW DOES THE SWFF WORK?

Start by submitting your photo (limit of 3) or/and film here before Sept. 30th, 2022.

 

Once all projects are received, finalist selection will begin. All selected finalists will be contacted by November 1st 2022

 

SWFF will be shown throughout Northern BC communities, and participants vote on their favourite films and photos. A group of judges representing Skeena communities selects the finalists from all photo and video entries. Community votes are tallied after the tour and all the winners will be announced in December.
