'New and improved' membership levels

(1st September 2022)

We have recently updated our WFN membership levels to better reflect our membership. You are now able to join as an International member, a Student, Full member or a Pro member.

International Membership:
If you are joining the WFN from Overseas, do not pay UK Tax, will not be joining our monthly network meetings, and probably will not be involved in any WFN Productions; but still wish to take full advantage of advertising your details in the WFN database, you can enjoy a heavy discounted membership here.

Student Membership:
If you are a student studying ‘any’ subject within the UK, you can enjoy a heavy discounted membership by joining the WFN as a student. You will be able to join us at our monthly network meetings, as well as taking full advantage of advertising your details in the WFN database.
(You will need to prove you are a registered / studying student to receive a student account)

Full Membership:
Or, if you are not an international member or a UK student, and still wish to join the WFN to display your details on the WFN database, join us at our monthly network meetings around the UK, and take advantage of many other WFN membership offers; you should join as a Full Member.

Pro Membership:
Pro members have all the benefits of a Full member, with the additional option of being able to display your Showreel on your Personal Profile Page. They will also receive a free ‘Advertising Banner’ (normally £10 a month), designed to bring more web visitors directly to their profile; and finally, 50% of their monthly membership fees will be added to the Production Kitty, which will permit them to work as part of the production crew on a WFN production (Should they wish to)

+ We have added our 'Wildlife Film School' to our network

(19th November)

To make the Wildlife Film Network even more interactive within the wildlife community, we have now our Wildlife Film School  to our WFN community website.
Please do not think that because we have just added our film school now it is of no relevance. We have been running the wildlife film school for the past 15 years, and the WFN Network is actually devised from ideas spawned during our time running these film courses.

You do not have to be a member of the WFN to attend a wildlife film school course with us. (but it would be nice of you were)
