The Humane Society of the United States has opened up its call for submissions for its US$20,000 Animal Content in Entertainment (ACE) Grant.

This year the annual grant, which launched in 2006, sees executives from Animal Planet, Sundance Channel, HBO, Participant Media, Gravitas Ventures, and The Documentary Channel take places on its judging panel.

Documentary filmmakers who have produced works focusing on animal issues can enter here.

The regular deadline is August 1, while the late deadline is September 1.

Last year’s winner was Cages of Shame, about a rescue from a Chinese bear farm, while the runner-up was The Eyes of Thailand, about the world’s first elephant hospital.

More information can be found on the ACE Grant website.
