The Wildlife Film Network will be running both a Film & Photographic competition for its members each year.

Wildlife Film Competition

As the WFN grows, we will be looking to run an annual Wildlife Film Competition from within the WFN Members, once the membership is large enough to make it viable (500+ film makers). This can be both, a film a WFN Member has worked on as part of a WFN production, or an independent production they have produced themselves.

In film making, titles are held in high regard. It is a well known that an award-winning film maker will go on to gain more professional work then an unrecognised film maker.
The Wildlife Film Network is going to hold an annual wildlife film competition which is equally open to all its full members. The member/s winning the award will have the honour of being able to introduce themselves as an WFN award-winning wildlife film maker, be listed as such on the WFN website, receive an award certificate and trophy for permanent display.

The competition will have three sections:
– Wildlife films of up to 5 minutes
– Wildlife films of 5 to 15 minutes
– Wildlife films of more than 15 minutes.
The competition will be held annually in January selecting from wildlife films produced by an individual or crew within the previous year.

Wildlife Photographic Competition

As the WFN grows, we will be looking to run an annual Wildlife Photographic Competition from within the WFN Members once the membership is large enough to make it viable (500+ photographers). This can be both of, a scene or event that has occurred during a film they have worked on as part of the WFN, or an independent wildlife photograph they have taken at any time during the year themselves.

The world of professional wildlife photography is a very hash one. To fully succeed you need to be able to stand out from the crowd. One of the most commanding ways to do this is to become an award winning photographer.
The Wildlife Film Network is going to hold an annual wildlife photographic competition equally open to all its Full Members. The member/s winning the award have the honour of being able to introduce themselves as an WFN award-winning photographer, be listed as such on the WFN website, receive an award certificate and trophy for permanent display.

The competition will have three sections:
– Photographs of wildlife
– Photographs of wildlife conservation
– Photographs of ‘behind the scenes crew/s’ working on a wildlife film production.
The competition will be held annually in November selecting from photographs taken over the previous year.
