Calling All Nonprofits: Does Your Video Tell a Powerful Story?
Did you know that by the end if 2012, videos will account for 50 percent of all Internet traffic?
Online videos are powerful storytelling tools. Many nonprofits are using them to attract donors and volunteers, and to multiply the impact they can have on the people and communities they serve.
As a sponsor of the 2012 DoGooder Nonprofit Awards, Cisco will get a chance to recognize four nonprofits that have successfully used video to create meaningful, positive change.
Cisco will provide $14,000 in cash prizes and up to $6,000 in products to be divided amongst the winning nonprofits in the following categories:
- Best Small Organization Video (made by an organization with an annual budget of US$1 million or less).
- Best Medium Organization Video (made by an organization with an annual budget between US$1 million and US$5 million).
- Best Large Organization Video (made by an organization with an annual budget of US$5 million or more).
- Best Storytelling Video (for the best use of video to tell compelling, moving stories).
Nonprofits from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia can submit their videos between now and February 29.
Judges will select 16 finalists, and the winners will be chosen by public voting between March 15 and March 28.
