Baleine Libre Video Award
Each year, during the annual conference of the ECS, a video night is hosted by the local conference organisers. This is an evening social event allowing conference attendees to share experiences from the field. The videos range from thought-provoking to artistic to simply comic.
In 2014 the ECS gratefully received a small legacy from the former Baleine Libre organisation, from which it grants a small cash prize for the best film in some years. Past winners of the award are listed below:
|Year||Conference||Title of Winning Video||Winner|
|2014||Liège, Belgium||R/V Song of the Whale Eastern Mediterranean Research 2013||Marine Conservation Research|
|2015||St. Julian's, Malta||Post Mortem of a Pygmy Sperm Whale||Cerri Morris (Natural Resources Wales)|
