Thank you for your interest in the 2023 World Wildlife Day Film Showcase Entry. The showcase will highlight films that encompass the theme of Conservation Heroes: Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation. We are seeking films that most effectively celebrate the achievements of individuals and/or groups working together to make substantial progress in enhancing the protection or regeneration of a species, ecosystem or some other aspect of the natural world in the face of our global climate crisis. Submission is free of charge.

The World Wildlife Day Film Showcase will be available worldwide for free, educational screening via our secure streaming platform on Eventive as well as in-person live screenings. The showcase will be available throughout the year to help further the enthusiasm of community involvement in conservation. It is not mandatory to have your film screen virtually and in-person for the entirety of the year and distribution restrictions may still apply. However, these restrictions will be taken into consideration in the final film selection. 


Film Submission Guidelines:

Any film completed after January 1st, 2019 prominently featuring science, wildlife or nature conservation is eligible to enter. Submissions in all languages are welcomed, although programs in a language other than English must be subtitled in English for presentation to the judges and for streaming as part of the World Wildlife Day Film Showcase.

Films that are a part of a series must enter separately as individual episodes. When entering an episode of a series please enter the title as Series Title: Episode Title. Please restrict entering more than three episodes per season. 

Deadline is January 4th, 2023
