CICADA Film Festival

An initiative of Wildlife Queensland Bayside Branch, the Cicada Film Festival (formerly Cicada Awards) has been giving young people a voice on environmental issues since 2011. It has gained major support from Ocean Ark Alliance and Ocean Crusaders. This short-film competition for youth across South East Queensland has two categories – General and Oceans, and two age groups – U13 and 13-24 (inclusive). Entries in the 2019 CFF close 7 May. Winners are announced at a Premiere Screening & Awards Night on Friday, 7 June.

More information can be found at the Cicada Film Festival website.

Your Voice for Your Wildlife Awards

Every year Wildlife Queensland recognises the achievements and efforts of its members through a special awards ceremony held in September.

The awards categories are:

  1. A new and successful Wildlife Queensland campaign in your region
  2. A new or ongoing Wildlife Queensland project involving the community
  3. The Margaret Thorsborne Award for outstanding contribution by a member.


The third award, named in honour of our patron, Margaret Thorsborne, acknowledges members who have made an outstanding contribution to the Society, conservation and the community. These members, like Margaret, have led by example and are an inspiration to others within the Society and their respective communities.

Please consider sending in a nomination for one of these awards. Read the criteria carefully and tell us, in approx 350 words, how you think this person, project or campaign meets the criteria and why you think recognition is deserved. The nomination can come from a non-member but the subject must be a Wildlife Queensland member or activity.

Please email completed nomination forms to wpsq@wildlife.org.au before 31 July.
