Whether it's a turtle, a puma or a praying mantis - every year an animal from the official festival poster looks nature film enthusiasts in the eye and invites them to watch outstanding nature films. Now GREEN SCREEN is looking for the poster motif for 2023.

Until April 3, 2023, amateur and professional photographers worldwide have the opportunity to submit their fascinating or amazing animal portraits. Prerequisite: In the picture, an animal looks at the viewer and the picture tells a story - just like a good nature film.

A jury of experts will review the submissions and determine the winner. The winning image will be announced in April and will advertise the festival on program booklets, posters, the website and social media for a year starting in July 2023. In addition to the winning motif, a selection of other submissions will be on display during the festival in Eckernförde from September 6 to 10.
