Our official hashtag for the BLUE Ocean Film Festival event this year is #BLUE2016. You should tag all of your social media postings during and after the event with this tag so your content will be easily grouped with other attendees shared posts and to create a greater impact for the oceans.
You might like to bookmark this special Twitter Hub that we have created in order to aggregate all of the media tagged #BLUE2016 so that we can share your posts after the festival and during the event. You can even send new tweets to or about us (@BlueOceanFilm) right from that page.
You can even embed the hashtag hub into your own site, if you like. Just grab the code from the page. This is the live version of the embed.

The BLUE Ocean film festival is happy to announce that we have selected our winners for our YouTube contest, “How do you see the Ocean?” We received 32 amazing entries in total and while each had merit and were obviously made with care and passion, one rose as the grand prize winner.
Teresa Carey from Amherst, Massachusetts is our grand prize winner.
In 2008 she moved aboard a small sailboat. During the following two years she sailed solo and lived aboard a 27 foot boat with her cat Dory for company. Her focus was to live in concert with the ocean by enjoying its beauty and challenge, exploring simplicity, and drastically reducing her environmental impact.
During that time she met Ben who also lived aboard his small sailboat. The couple sailed side-by-side for several years until recently when they decided to change course. The two married last month and are now looking to purchase their “home,” which will be a boat they can raise a family on while they sail around the world.
Definately check out Teresa’s winning video. We offer the couple congratulations on their recent marriage and on winning our contest. The couple will recieve travel from Amherst to Monterey, CA, three nights stay at the Portola Hotel and Spa, BLUE Whale VIP passes to the Festival and a VIP “goodie bag.”
Congratulations again and see you at the BLUE Ocean film fest!
