Perfect.

The 2011 DoGooder Nonprofit Video Contest  is taking submissions starting February 1st.  The contest is presented by YouTube and See3 Communications and generously sponsored by Cisco, the Case Foundation and NTEN.So what do the winning nonprofits get for participating?  The four best videos will each receive $3,500 in prize donations and an additional gift of up $3,500 (US) worth of Cisco products to help each winning org harness the power of human and technology networks to multiply their impact on the people and communities they serve.  Winners will also receive a free registration to next year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference provided by NTEN.  In addition, the Case Foundation will provide $10,000 in grants to select winners.

 

This year’s contest features a special category for all orgs, regardless of size.  “Best Video Storytelling” celebrates videos that employ narrative and tell the real, human stories of people, organization and issues.

 

Finally, the winning videos will be announced at this year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference (www.nten.org/ntc) hosted by NTEN and featured on YouTube’s homepage in on Thursday, April 5th.  You read that right: the winning videos will be featured on the YouTube homepage.  At the end of last year’s contest, the winning videos received almost 1 million new views after being featured on the YouTube homepage for just one day.

 

You can submit your videos from February 1st until February 29th.  Start thinking about which creative, compelling and interesting video your nonprofit wants to submit, and begin rallying your supporters to vote in March.  Good luck!
