The theme of this year’s contest is From the Ground Up: Using Technology to Engage Constituents and Make the World a Better Place. Last year’s winner, Avaaz’ “Stop the Clash of Civilizations” has been viewed over 1.5 million times on YouTube. (Take a look–this is fabulous, compelling and catchy. You’ll want to view it at least twice.)
I love contests and awards. They get me off my b___ to create, to push myself, to experiment for client organizations (and to win a great prize on occasion). Use this opportunity to do this same with a few videos for your nonprofit, even if its a first-time production for you.
- Videos can focus on almost any issue area.
- Submission deadline is February 15th, 2008, with finalist videos posted on DoGooderTV March 1st so viewers can vote on winners
- Winner will be announced at NTEN’s annual conference (NTC) on March 21.
- The winner will be awarded an all-expense paid trip to the 2009 NTC to be held in San Francisco.
Jump into this no lose, little cost, a bit of risk and effort opportunity with great potential for fun, marketing impact and perhaps even a trip to Frisco.
