Eamon deBuitlear Chairing Jury for Wildlife Europe
02 Dec 2003 :
Eamon deBuitlear has been appointed Chairman of the Festival Jury for Wildlife Europe (www.europe.se) which takes place in Sweden from 1st to 7th of December.

Background to the Festival
Wildlife Europe first took place in December 1997. That year 5 Lynx Awards were on offer, and 150 wildlife productions participated. 1999 the festival grew and 186 entries competed for the 7 lynx trophies. The fourth edition of the festival presents 11 awards, sponsored by international, well-known companies. The festival is organised by Wildlife Europe AB, a limited company formed by SVT (Sweden), NRK (Norway), Vides Filmu Studija (Latvia), ETV (Estonia), LRT (Lithuania, RUV (Iceland) and EO International (The Netherlands).

Competition Aims
One of the main goals of the festival is to stimulate the production of high quality films about European natural world, wildlife and environment. The exceptions are: the children's category, that has no boundaries (for example, many films are animated, the underwater category and the science categories are all open to the whole world. Through encouraging these productions we hope to raise the viewers' awareness of their responsibility to the natural world around us.

Qualifying Productions
The subject matter of the productions needs to be European (except underwater, children’s and the science categories). Living Europe promotes a wide perspective on the natural world involving: animal behaviour, habitats, ecology, conservation, environmental issues and the relationship between human beings and the natural world. Animals should not be stressed or harmed in the making of these programmes and there should be no doubt about the scientific integrity. Productions with innovative forms and which use new techniques are welcome
