Apologies for the tardiness of recent newsletters ... Some life upheaval has got in the way, but I am trying to catch up! JP

NB. It is enormously challenging keeping this resource going, in all sorts of ways not least financially, so should you like to support my efforts, you can do so by chipping in here.

Re-subscribe to WFN here!

To comply with new EU data protection regulations (GDPR), which came into force on the 25th of May 2018, we have had to to ask all subscribers to re-subscribe to Wildlife Film News ... As we are based in the UK/EU, even if you are not, we need all subscribers to re-subscribe. We love sending you all the latest from our members and the wider industry and would hate to lose you, so please re-subscribe!

Wildlife-film.com needs your financial support too!
Love Wildlife Film News? Well, because of new regulations, producing it is going to be more expensive due to having to move to using a new email-sending server... i.e. we will be using MailChimp! Sending WFN, apart from much of my time and website running costs, has thus far been free! I very much want to continue sending the newsletter as a free-for-all resource, but for those that can afford to chip in, it would be so very helpful and hugely appreciated. Thank you from Jason! :)

Wildlife Film News


Wildlife Film News (WFN) is a monthly newsletter with an incredible reputation - it's read by thousands of industry professionals in over 175 countries.

We regularly report on wildlife film festivals and calls for entry, which are important for amateurs and professionals alike.

We work in partnership with Wildlife-film.com members (our listed freelancers and companies) to bring you the most relevant and up-to-the minute news from the wildlife filmmaking industry, but we also help out others looking for specific information or those with important news to share.

Wildlife-film.com Needs Your Support!

As many of you will know, Wildlife Film News is put together by me, Jason Peters, producer of Wildlife-film.com. The entire resource is run on a shoestring and is in dire need of a face-lift. I could also do with additional help with the day to day running of the site. That means a revamp of the site and newsletter, plus hiring someone to update content and assist with social media. Both of these things require funds and they are seriously lacking. Members pay to be onboard but I am reticent to increase the membership fees as many wouldn't be able to afford it.

I would very much like to give the site a complete over-haul this year, adding the ability for members to update their own Profile Pages for example, and I'd like to improve the newsletter in various ways. I'd like to update the logo too. Many improvements to be made. Suggestions always welcome.

So, whilst Wildlife Film News will always remain a free and open resource, available to all, it occured to me that some of our many subscribers might be happy to chip in a small amount each month to assist me in my aspirations. Wildlife-film.com is fast growing and so we obviously need to be as current and relevant as possible to keep up, and be the best resource for our members and subscribers.

If any of you feel that you can manage a small monthly or annual subscription, I really would be most grateful. Please check visit: wildlife-film.com/WFN-subscription-payment.htm

Thank You! :)
