It’s time again for the Nonprofit Video Awards from DoGooderTV, sponosored by NTEN & See3 Communications.

If you were at the 08NTC last April, then you probably remember the awards ceremony for the 2008 contest.  The Humane Society of the US won for the video “Overlooked: The Lives of Animals Raised for Food.”  The winners will be announced at the NTC again this year, and hopefully the winning video won’t be too contrary to the meal during the awards ceremony!

The DoGooderTV Nonprofit Video Awards highlight organizations that are using video to inspire and ignite social change. This year’s theme, “Everyone’s Doing It”, is meant to include submissions of all shapes and sizes, from organizational vlogs, to staff-produced web clips, to high-end, professionally produced videos. If your organization made a video—any video—in 2008, we want to see it!

Submit as many videos as you’d like without any entry fees. Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries at the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) in San Francisco on April 26-28, 2009. Deadline for submissions is March 26, 2009.

This year, we’ll be selecting winners from the following categories:

  • Staff Videos: videos produced, shot, and edited in-house by your staff
  • Vlogs : series of “video blog” entries about an organization, issue, or event
  • Long-form Videos: any video over 5 minutes
  • Short-form Videos: any video under 5 minutes
  • Overall Winner: best of show

The contest is sponsored by NTEN and See3 Communications, a leading provider of video, web, and online strategy services for nonprofits and social causes.

  • Hi Michelle-

    I’m not associated with DoGooderTV or NTEN, so can’t say difinitively whether you are eligible or not. You can check out the Rules & Guidelines on the website here: http://www.dogooder.tv/contest2009/

    Let us know if the video is available online; I would love to see it – and I’m sure other readers would, too!

  • Thanks a million Amy. I will follow up with dogooder.tv.

    The video can be founded at http://www.2steps.com its name is “We are all just two steps from homelessness. Stories of 8 people who have beaten homelessness” 34 minutes.

    People can relate to this title even more since the terribly tragic Victorian bush fires hit last weekend. In addition to lives lost over 1000 homes have also been destroyed……
