Prestigious award for 13-year-old hedgehog filmmaker Dylan
21st September 2020
During lockdown 13-year-old Dylan spotted hedgehogs in his garden and quickly became fascinated by them. He began leaving food out for his prickly guests and watching them on a wildlife camera.
Dylan was inspired to put together a film to educate people about hedgehogs and how to help them. You can watch the full video entitled ‘The Wonderful World of Hedgehogs‘ below.
A shortened version of the film was entered into the The Film and TV School Wales’ Schools and Colleges Awards 2020, and it’s just been announced that’s Dylan’s a winner! His fantastic film won Best Narrative Film (Documentary) in the 11-15 age category!
Congratulations from everyone here at Hedgehog Street, and thank you for doing your bit to raise awareness Dylan. We’re so pleased for you!
Dylan and his mum are continuing their good work by lobbying their local garden centres to put hedgehog warning labels on equipment.
