Celebrating Fearless Nonprofit Videos: DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards
For six years now, the DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards has been shining a spotlight on all the innovative ways that nonprofits use video. The contest is about moving the field of nonprofit video forward and encouraging cause-video creators to try new approaches that make their work different.
The Case Foundation is offering a special award for this year’s contest. Did you experiment? Take risks? Did you highlight a failure from your past that’s helping shape the future? Share a big idea that will inspire others to dream big? Were you… Fearless? The Case Foundation is awarding one $2,500 grant to the organization with the most fearless video in each of the four categories, as selected by a panel of special judges.
You can also win cash prizes and products from Cisco, free registrations to next year’s NTC from NTEN and see your video on the YouTube homepage on April 5, 2012 (see prize info). To enter the awards, visit the contest website by February 29, 2012, and submit your video.
Winners will be announced on April 5, 2012. Last year’s contest was a record setter with almost 1,400 submissions from over 800 nonprofit organizations. See past winners here to get inspired. Read the contest FAQ.
