The Bird and Nature Festival (or Festival de l'Oiseau et de la Nature as it is known among French-speakers) is based in Abbeville, Bay of Somme in the North of France.
We are proud to have developed around our international film competition, open to amateurs and professionals, many other activities among which are the photo competition and exhibitions and activities for children. But what makes our event really special is that it offers the unique opportunity to discover the Bay of Somme (a member of 'The Most Beautiful Bays in the World's Club' as well as Vietnamese Ha Long Bay) and the whole area with guides specialized in ornithology or flora. In 2012, around 400 walks, rides, boat crossings were available during the 9 days of the Festival.
The film competition offers an overall amount of €13,500 prizes (€4,000 to the Grand Prix). Films can be entered free of charge in either one of the 4 categories:
- Environment (no length limit)
- Amateur (maximum 13 minutes duration).
