Mercury Marine recently announced the winners of its Mercury Film Festival for consumer and partner videos.

Mercury invited consumers, partners and employees to submit on-the-water videos this summer for a chance to win a free engine, fishing trips and more.

Lonnie King, a resident of Orleans, Ontario, won the consumer category for his “Merky Dreams” video, which starred his two sons, 9-year-old Kelsey and 7-year-old Kalen. The video tells the story of a young boy’s nightmare and how Mercury comes to the rescue.

The family won a Mercury engine of their choice because their video was voted the top consumer video.

Cody Graham of Victoria, British Columbia, won the Mercury partner category for his “Mercury Arctic Adventure” documentary detailing Shockwave Seats president David Smith and Discovery Channel adventurer Bear Grylls’ 8,000-mile record run from the North Atlantic, through the Northwest Passage, to the Pacific Northwest in a RIB equipped with triple Mercury Verado engines.

Graham, the director of Media One Multimedia, which produced the video, won a VIP trip for two to the 2012 Bassmaster Classic.

More than 300 videos were submitted and tens of thousands of people visited the contest website during the four-month promotion.
