The award winner, Aimée Lieberum, is a student at the University of Leipzig Veterinary Faculty and developed an interest in animal welfare at a young age when she carried out voluntary work and fundraising for animal shelters near her home

Aimée is an active member of the BVVD, which is the German national student association and is the head of their animal welfare group, where she organises regular discussion workshops on animal welfare with her fellow students.

She also actively promoted the 2nd IVSA Animal Welfare Conference jointly with the 4th BVVD Annual Animal Welfare Seminar. She was one of the main coordinators and organised the conference with the help of a small team of veterinary students. The conference was attended by 120 students; national and international.

Speaking about her award, she said: “It’s sometimes quite hard to be taken seriously as students so I thinkthis award is very important because it shows that vets really do acknowledge what I do and what we do as students on the subject of animal welfare and I really think this will make a difference in the future.”

Our filming for the Awards took Good Call Media to five continents in just two months and we also helped to host the Awards, held at the WVA’s 35th Annual Congress in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Beautiful New Zealand Our Latest Location

We had no problems accepting our latest assignment – filming in the beautiful North Island of New Zealand.

The subject is a series of films promoting the 2020 World Veterinary Association Congress which will be held in Auckland, New Zealand in April 2020. The event will also feature the Global Welfare Awards, sponsored by our client, Ceva Animal Health, which we support, film and host on stage.

This year we are producing a series of short video trailers for social media and the WVA website promoting both the main Congress and the Welfare Awards. The videos will run on a regular basis throughout the Autumn of 2019 and early in 2020.

These trailers have been shown to generate increased interest in  events and they also encourage delegates to register earlier.The 2020 World Veterinary Association Congress will be held 6-8 April, 2020 in Auckland, New Zealand. It will be the 36th edition of the Association’s Congress and will be hosted in conjunction with the highly successful NZVA Annual Conference.

The World Veterinary Association Congress (WVAC) 2020 will bring veterinarians from all over the world to Auckland to share ideas, learn and to have fun. The congress will explore and seek solutions to some of the biggest animal health and welfare challenges   facing all species in the fast changing world in which we live today.

The WVAC 2020 programme will focus primarily on clinical veterinary medicine, veterinary public health, animal welfare and academic research across all domestic species.  Other topics to be covered include companion animal nursing, large animal veterinary technicians and equine veterinary nursing.

Speakers from around the world will discuss topical issues such as advances in veterinary medicine, and will explore new horizons in the treatment and prevention of animal disease. The congress will incorporate the Global One Heath Summit, which will showcase speakers from international organisations including the OIE, FAO and WHO. It will also include what promises to be an inspiring and enlightening Global Seminar on Animal Welfare.

Auckland’s excellent conference facilities and outstanding restaurants and bars will ensure the social aspects of the conference do not disappoint.

Colombia Filming For Awards

Colombia was the location for our film highlighting the South American winner of the 2019 World Veterinary Association Global Animal Welfare Awards. The project has involved our cameras travelling to five continents in just two months to capture the amazing stories of the veterinarians who have gone ‘above and beyond’ when it comes to promoting the field of animal welfare in the World.

Receiving the Award at the ceremony in San Jose, Costa Rica

Dr. Brito is highly recognised and respected both in Colombia and in Latin America for his work in animal health and welfare. As Animal Welfare Focal Point for OIE in Colombia and through continuous work over several years, his career has contributed science-based and legal support to develop the creation of the legal framework and regulations that can give a better quality of life to the animals in the country (especially to production animals), and in the region within the One Health and One Welfare framework.

He has worked in the Colombian Agricultural Institute (ICA) from 1988 and has been Coordinator of the Safety in Primary Animal Production Group from February 2017 to the current date.

Speaking about his WVA Award, Dr. Brito said: “It’s an award that I hope will be given to more vets because it promotes animal welfare and shows that it is an important subject and it is therefore of fundamental importance to the development of future generations of vets.”
