Congratulations to the winners of the DoGooder Video Awards, who were announced today at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, D.C.!
The DoGooder Awards recognize the creative and effective use of video to promote social good. Cisco sponsored the awards for the third year in a row, providing a cash prize to the winner in the “Best Nonprofit Video” category. Watch all four winning videos below.
Best Nonprofit Video
“Right By You” from Partners for Mental Health. This 30-second video shows why we need to do more to end tragedies like youth suicide.
Funny For Good Award
“Nutiquette: A Dude’s Guide to Checking His Nuts” from Canadian Cancer Society. Viewers are treated to a catchy tune as they learn the steps of checking for testicular cancer.
Most Inspiring Youth Media
“The Paradise That Wasn’t” from Wide Angle Youth Media. This video gives an in-depth look at the prejudices refugees face in America by spotlighting young people who have endured them.
“Slaying Childhood Cancer” from Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Jordan Vincent was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor; her father narrates this video about her ongoing treatment and her unyielding spirit.
The winner of the ImpactX Award was determined by a panel of Cisco employee judges. The award recognizes a video that created tangible impact for the organization — such as increased donations, greater visibility, or policy change.
Video is an increasingly effective way for nonprofits to educate people about social and environmental issues, encourage them to take action, and inspire broad change. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, mobile video will represent 69 percent of global mobile data traffic by 2018, up from 53 percent in 2013.
