For the 2014 Panda Awards submissions, Wildscreen Festival teamed up with PicturePipe to provide its users with a state of the art and easy to use submission process. To this end PicturePipe supplied Wildscreen with user registration, submission form, film file upload, quality control and online payment.

Together with Wildscreen, the PicturePipe team made sure that submitting a film to the Panda Awards is a convenient step-by-step procedure:
  • it starts with users registering for an account at wildscreen.picturepipe.net
  • is followed by entering their project data
  • choosing an award category
  • using PayPal for online payment
  • uploading their film with the PicturePipe video film upload app
  • the submission process is complete with the user approving the quality of the film.
Wildscreen Festival will take place from Sunday 19 to Friday 24 October 2014 in Bristol, UK. Industry professionals and visitors can look forward to enjoying all of the submitted films for the duration of the festival, as they will be accessible through the online video library of PicturePipe Premium, specifically customized to meet the needs of Wildscreen Festival.
