The Collective is the virtual home for the Jackson Wild global storytelling community to connect, collaborate, and inspire change year-round. Through ongoing mentorship, an international production database, and career-building programs, the Collective provides a resource for storytellers at all levels to elevate their impact and expand their opportunities.
The Collective is a free and private community, and membership is approved on an individual basis. To join the community, click here to submit an application. Once approved, as a member of the Collective, you will have access to build your own profile, browse the global production database, check out the jobs/opportunities board, and more!
If you have been a Jackson Wild Media Awards finalist or have been recommended to the Collective by a Board member or Mentor, you will be noted as a Collective Referred Member in the database. If you would like to be considered for our referral program, please email [email protected]

“I really appreciated the editing masterclass with Candice Odgers, as it was not only instructional, but it brought together a group of people with a common interest in a particular part of the filmmaking process. (I'm passionate about editing, so it was a great fit for me!)” - Kirsten Whatley
“I've been able to find mentors through the Collective, and they've been really important in helping me chart a path for my career.” - Peter Ndung'u
