Wildscreen is an award-winning wildlife conservation charity that shares awe-inspiring images of life on Earth to empower conservation around the world.  When strong storytelling and captivating imagery are united to portray the planet, they believe that people are moved to take action to protect it.

Wildscreen delivers its mission through three key initiatives:

Wildscreen Festivals:
Their prestigious festivals gather the world’s best in wildlife photography and filmmaking. They are a chance to showcase the very best in the business, the latest technological innovations and new storytelling styles, as well providing a prestigious and fun place for networking, to negotiate new projects and nurture important new talent. Through these festivals we define industry agendas and promote excellence in storytelling.

About Wildscreen Exchange content commissioning:
Wildscreen believes that powerful visual storytelling is the best way to engage the masses with our natural world and to inspire people to take action to protect it. As well as creating an online image hub for conservation organisations to help them bolster their own communications, Exchange will also act as an honest broker between content creators and conservation organisations, making sure the most critical conservation stories get told. In order to demonstrate the impact of commissioning content to potential funders, conservation organisations themselves and other stakeholders, Wildscreen is going to commission four photostories or films working with a conservation organisation and a professional filmmaker or photographer in order to create content around some key conservation issues in order to seek publicity for the conservation organisations and the issue they are tackling and trying to solve as well as promoting the Wildscreen Exchange initiative and all that it represents.
