About this event

Entries in the 2020 Cicada Film Festival close on Threatened Species Day. There are many benefits for entrants and $4,500 cash prizes. 

The Cicada Awards is itself an Award-winning project! Initiated by the Wildlife Preservation Society of Qld Bayside Branch in 2011, it was part of a larger project which took out the Minister’s Grand Prize and the Brisbane Airport Community Award at the 2012 Healthy Waterways Awards.

The Bayside Branch members believe that our youth have the most at stake in actions and decisions being made today. The Cicada Awards is a means of giving youth a chance to be heard. The cicada was chosen for the title of the Awards to emphasize that small things have a big part to play in our world and that like cicadas youth can, and should be heard, sometimes loudly.

Entrants in the Cicada Awards have a chance to learn more about environmental issues as they research their projects; develop skills from writing, filming, editing and sometimes performing in, their productions; and, grow confidence from contributing to important issues that are shaping their lives.

The films are also intended to educate and influence . . . they have been shared with Councils because of relevance to Local Laws Reviews and Non-Government Organisations whose work is related to the topics addressed by the entrants. The broader community is also a welcome audience and the films are available for viewing from Playlists on Wildlife Bayside’s YouTube. Entrants are encouraged to organise their own ‘film screening’ events with family and friends.
