SURFER Poll Film Submission Deadline Looms

| posted on September 20, 2010

In hopes of getting every surf film made this year in the running to win a SURFER Poll award, we have extended the submission deadline from September 20, 2010 (today) to September 27, 2010 (next Monday). “We’ve had a lot of films submitted for the video awards portion of the night,” says SURFER Editor at Large and Surfer Poll Director Joel Patterson, “but we felt like several filmmakers needed another week to get us their work, so we’re putting the word out to make sure we include all the great work put out during the last year.”
