Environmental Charity Launches National Youth Film Competition with Wildscreen
From EarthWatch
9th August 2018

This summer, environmental charity Earthwatch Europe has teamed up with the Bristol-based Wildscreen Festival to launch a national film competition for UK residents aged 14 to 17.

Young Earthwatcher Film Competition

The Young Earthwatcher Film Competition invites budding environmentalists to make a short film highlighting an environmental issue and presenting a solution or action people can take to help meet this challenge. Through the process of making their film, participants will not only benefit from connecting with nature, getting creative and developing their communication skills, but will also play a valuable role in inspiring their peers.

Young Earthwatcher Film Competition

Steve Gray, Chief Executive of Earthwatch Europe, said: “Young people today will inherit a world shaped by our actions over the next decade. Engaging young citizens in environmental issues is key to a sustainable future for all. We hope the competition encourages young people to explore the natural world around them and inspire each other to find innovative solutions to pressing challenges.”

Young Earthwatcher Film Competition

In addition to goody bags and an official certificate, competition finalists will receive an invitation to the Earthwatch event at the Wildscreen Festival in Bristol in October, where their films will be screened and discussed. The overall winner will walk away with a prestigious Panda Award, the ‘Green Oscar’ of the wildlife film-making world.


The film must:

  • introduce an environmental issue
  • present a solution or action that people can take
  • be no more than two minutes long

Further details, rules and registration can be found at www.earthwatch.org.uk/filmcompetition.

Key dates:

Competition deadline: 19 September 2018
Finalists announced: 24 September 2018
Earthwatch event at Wildscreen Festival: 17 October 2018
