doGooder Nonprofit Video Awards

Lori Halley 15 February 2012 0 comments

Video can be a great way to share your mission and engage supporters and members. And if your nonprofit has created a video to tell your story in 2011, here's your chance to showcase your organization’s best work. The 6th Annual doGooders Nonprofit Video Awards are calling for entries before February 29th! 

What are the doGooder Awards?

See3, in partnership with YouTube, are accepting submissions for the doGooder Nonprofit Video Awards throughout the month of February. This competition is designed to both recognize nonprofits who’ve successfully used this medium and help nonprofits move further in their use of media.

Submission categories include:

  • Best Small Organization Video – for organizations with an annual budget of $1,000,000 or less
  • Best Medium Organization Video – for organizations with an annual budget between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000.
  • Best Large Organization Video – for organizations with an annual budget of $5,000,000 or more.
  • Best Storytelling Video – for best use of video to tell compelling moving stories.

Who’s eligible?

The contest rules state that: "This contest is open only to nonprofit organizations in the YouTube Nonprofit Program, or organizations that apply to the YouTube Nonprofit Program during the submission period. Entrants must be over 18 years old and must be located in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.”

What can you win?

This year, winners have the chance to win one of four $3,500 prize donations along with great products worth an additional $3,500 provided by the Cisco, a free registration to next year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference provided by NTEN and a special prize to recognize fearless use of video provided by the Case Foundation.

In addition, the winning videos will be announced at this year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference hosted by NTEN and featured on YouTube’s homepage on April 5th. The folks at the DoGooder Awards tell me that: “the YouTube part is sort of like having your nonprofit video seen during the Super Bowl - last year's winners enjoyed over 1 MILLION new views after being featured here for just one day.)”

How can you participate?

Nonprofits need to fire up your YouTube accounts, visit the contest website, and submit your best original videos (that were produced in 2011) – no later than February 29th.

For more information: check out this video and visit the DoGooder Awards contest site.

So if you’ve made some amazing videos this past year - here’s your chance to gain recognition for your efforts and promotion for your cause.
