Forget the Oscars, I love the DoGooder awards.
Now in its 6th year, the DoGooder Nonprofit video awards program is presented by See3 Communications and YouTube in association with Cisco and the Case Foundation. The awards are completely free to enter and open to any eligible nonprofit organization in the U.S., U.K, Canada and Australia that created video in 2011. The submission phase goes until February 29th, after which the public will have a chance to vote for the winning videos. (See3 is the wonderful agency that brought you the Generosity Day video!)
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 the Case Foundation. And– drumroll…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 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.) For nonprofits, video is a great way to share your mission, messages and goals. The medium educates, communicates urgency and tells honest, human stories that move people to create change.

And that’s not all…. TechSoup also has an award program—their 2012 TechSoup Digital Storytelling Challenge. Nonprofits can submit a one-minute video or five-photo slideshow to win award donations from TechSoup’s partners. The deadline is February 29, so hurry.
Submit a one-minute video here.
