WWT Slimbridge Launches its Summer Movie Competition

As part of Dusty’s Wildlife Rangers, a summer-long event of family activities and adventure, WWT Slimbridge are calling on all budding wildlife documentary-makers to wow them and win £250 worth of prizes.

Visitors are being invited to choose between the categories of Dusty’s Wildlife Rangers Best Day Ever and Wetland Wildlife at Slimbridge and make a 90 second long movie masterpiece using both film and still images.

Gary Haseley-Nejrup, WWT Slimbridge General Manager said:

“We’re so excited about the Summer Movie Competition. You don’t need all-singing, all-dancing filming equipment to make a show-stopping movie. Just a smart phone will do! We’ve chosen two categories that we think families will love getting creative with.”

“Best Day Ever (#BestDayEver) is all about catching your day of Wildlife Ranger action and adventure on camera; whether that’s filming your friends and family on a canoe safari or going on a reed bed adventure in Nature Detectives. And for the budding David Attenboroughs, Wetland Wildlife at WWT (#LoveSlimbridge) is about seeing things from a bird’s eye view – spotting the characteristics of your favourite animals that others might miss and showing their behaviours and habitats on camera.”

It’s so easy to enter. Simply like @WWTSlimbridge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share your movie using the hashtags #BestDayEver or #LoveSlimbridge, depending on your film category, and stand a chance of winning £250 worth of prizes, including shop vouchers and family membership to all WWT’s UK wetland centres.

The competition is open for entries until 5 September 2017. Children under 18 will need consent from a parent or guardian. Movies can be a combination of moving film and still images, up to 90 seconds long.
