FILMMAKERS, GRAB YOUR CAMERAS! ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT TO ENTER NAT GEO WILD AND SUN VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL'S "WILD TO INSPIRE" SHORT FILM COMPETITION

Winning Filmmaker Will Be Granted an African Expedition to Document Their Wildlife Interactions for Nat Geo WILD Viewers

This Year's Theme Is 'Let the WILD In'

(Washington, D.C. - Jan. 19, 2016) The clock is ticking. There are only two weeks left to enter Nat Geo WILD and Sun Valley Film Festival's third annual WILD TO INSPIRE filmmaking contest. One lucky winner will get to try their hand at filmmaking National Geographic style as they depart on an expedition to Africa to document wildlife for Nat Geo WILD viewers. The winner will share their experiences through video diaries, photos, social media and more, giving Nat Geo WILD viewers a taste of what it's like to be a Nat Geo WILD filmmaker.

The WILD TO INSPIRE film competition will accept submissions on Vimeo until Feb. 1, 2016.

Inspired by last year's winning film, "Adapt" by Filipe DeAndrade, which tells the story of a filmmaker who discovers his salvation in nature, submissions should capture stories of individuals letting the wild into their own lives. The goal is to captivate viewers and encourage them to seek out the wild in their own backyards. Films should be no more than five minutes long and will be judged on the following criteria:

· Connection to the theme of "Let the WILD In"

· Quality of the storyline and script

· Creativity and/or content originality

· Production quality

· Editing

The top three finalists will be announced by Feb. 15, 2016, and invited to the Sun Valley Film Festival in March 2016 to screen their films for festival attendees, a panel of judges and Nat Geo WILD executives. The winner will be announced at the festival's closing ceremony, and will receive an expedition to experience and document wildlife in some of the most exotic corners of the world for Nat Geo WILD viewers.

Last year's winner, Filipe DeAndrade, has spent the past couple months in Africa, working on several upcoming shows for Nat Geo WILD, while documenting his experience through regular blog posts, vlogs and social media.

For more information and complete rules, visit www.natgeowild.com/wildtoinspire. Only U.S. residents are eligible to enter this contest.
