For the first time, we’re inviting people from around the world to create and share their short (3 to 5 minutes in length) digital-ready films with Love Nature’s global audience. Imagine: your stories being told through our megaphone! We want to hear from you!

Don’t be intimidated! If you’re passionate about wildlife, have a story to share, and something to shoot on, this Showcase is for you! 

We will be looking at all of the submissions and will find a home for anything that will resonate with our audience, BUT the ones that really knock our socks off will be put forth to be viewed by a team of esteemed judges. We will choose five (5) Official Selections; these entries will be judged by seasoned professionals in the Natural History genre at Love Nature, Jackson Wild, and Wildscreen, as well as other creative forces in the space.
