The Annual DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards is a contest where nonprofit organizations must submit videos, animations, or mash-ups that they created in 2010 to make the world a better place. These are short videos, roughly 3-6 minutes long, produced by non-profits to further their cause through new media.
A panel initially judged submissions and the top sixteen entries were designated as finalists, which the public at large is to now vote on to determine the winners. Voting started on March 7th; ends on the 14th, and four winners will be announced on March 19th. The categories are as follows:
- Best Video from a Large Organization
- Best Video from a Medium Organization
- Best Video from a Small Organization
- Best “Thrifty” Video Produced for less than $500
The finalists’ submissions are posted on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/nonprofitvideoawards
There is a limit of one vote per day and you must be logged into your YouTube account to vote. My vote is for the Post Carbon Institute’s video: “300 years of Fossil Fuels in 300 seconds”.
The DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards is an annual contest run by See3 Communications in partnership with YouTube with support from the Case Foundation, Flip Video, and the Nonprofit Technology Network.
