  • receive special recognition
  • be invited to participate during the climate COP26
  • attend an online film making masterclass
  • be given film making equipment (such as external microphones and smartphone software).

Showing films during COP

Judges will make their selection for films to showcase during international meetings, starting with the climate change COP26 in November in Glasgow, UK.  We are currently organising screenings and events during the COP and arranging online digital events.

Judges will select films which best showcase the issues relating to the climate and ecological issues at the international meetings.


Judges will also select individual films for special mention and the awards below:

Impact training

The jury will be looking for stories and films which have an important message which they feel should be shared more widely to benefit both local and international communities.

We will work with 3 or more filmmakers to help them reach a wider audience and greater impact for their film. We will provide an online impact training session and award small equipment bursaries to help this activity.

Filmmaking training

The jury will be looking for filmmakers which display a hidden potential for making films.

We will provide an online film making masterclass to help make better films using a smartphone. The selected participants will join a small groups of filmmakers from around the world who will receive training through our online education programme.
