The Save Our Seas Foundation has received a Panda award in the category Best environmental Campaign for its short film “Save Our Sharks”. The Panda awards are given out at the annual Wildscreen Film Festival, and are widely regarded as the highest accolade for wildlife film makers. This year the three finalists were: The Bottom Line produced by Greenpeace; Yao Ming: Shark Fin Soup PSA produced by Wildaid and Save Our Sharks produced by the Save Our Seas Foundation.
The Campaign award is given to the best production, not commissioned by a broadcaster, that covers an environmental campaign. This award is especially significant as it was directed, filmed, produced and edited by an in-house team. Save Our Sharks is a 6 minute film which aims to educate the public about the barbaric practice of shark finning and it’s link to shark fin soup.
