The Wildscreen Panda Awards honour the very best in natural world storytelling craft.
The Panda Awards have sat at the heart of the Wildscreen Festival since they were presented at the first Festival back in 1982 and they remain the highest honour in the international wildlife film and TV. In 2018, the inaugural Photo Story Panda Award was introduced to recognise the craft of photography alongside that of film and cement the craft within the DNA of the Wildscreen Festival.
In 2020, the Wildscreen Panda Awards will go back to its roots. They will focus solely on the unique craft, specialist skills and talent required to tell nature’s stories.
