Dominica Film Challenge


The Dominica Film Challenge is currently seeking filmmakers, photographers and storytellers to help tell the story of the island and people of Dominica. Dominica, a small tropical island located in the Caribbean (West Indies), is not to be confused with the Dominican Republic. “Many have said Dominica reminds them of what Costa Rica was 20+ years ago, before the major development boom,” says Mike Kraabel, executive producer of the Dominica Film Challenge. “There are no chain resorts and most of the locations have very high ethical and sustainable mission statements.”

The Dominica Film Challenge aims to tell the world more about this incredible island. Selected applicants will receive round-trip airfare, accommodations, meals and trail guides. Teams will spend a week on the island and document their journeys with film, photography, and other types of creative social media, then publish and share their experience with their fans.

Applications are due Friday, February 28th and the project will take place toward the end of March 2014.  To learn more, visit

    When I click on the link I get the message, “Error establishing a database connection.”
    I would like to consider entering this competition, as I have been to Dominica, I’m a freelance travel writer/photographer with a huge interest in parrot conservation.
    Please let me know if there is another link where I can learn more about how to enter.
    Thank you.
