Awards 2011

Doclights teams are out and about in virtually every corner of the world to capture unforgettable images for their viewers. And it’s worth it: in the last two years alone Doclights productions have been honoured with over 150 prizes. Prominent among these are the by now regular nature film awards at the American animal film Oscars in Jackson Hole, as well as the Panda Awards at the Wildscreen Festival, the world championship of animal films, in Bristol, England. Doclights productions regularly compete successfully against the multi-million productions of the BBC and Disney Nature.
