About The Nat Geo Wild To Inspire Short Film Contest

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the 7th edition of the Nat Geo Wild to Inspire Short Film Contest sought films inspired by the natural world​.​​ We believe that great storytelling can spark curiosity, help solve big problems and catalyze actions.​​​ Fifty years after the first Earth Day, how will you use the power of film to explore these conversations in the 21st century?

In the past, the contest has included prizes such as:

  • Film screening and recognition during Sun Valley Film Festival awards ceremony
  • Opportunities to network with established producers and directors
  • National Geographic expeditions around the world
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
