Best Nonprofit Videos of the Year

While at the Nonprofit Technology Conference last week in Minneapolis, we were on hand to see the winners of the 2013 DoGooder Video Awards announced.

Four finalists were chosen for each category and then the winners were selected by the public.

The winner of the Best of Nonprofit Video Award was the Rainforest Alliance’s “Follow the Frog” video.

Why it works:

  1. It’s entertaining. Who doesn’t love an epic story of misadventure?
  2. It’s relatable. You probably haven’t quit your job and ended up in a Central American hospital, but you have probably wondered how you could do more to help the world.
  3. It has an easy to follow call to action. You are buying a lot of these products anyway. “Follow the frog” is an easy to remember tagline that helps you make better choices at the grocery store.

Other category winners:

Funny for Good Award – For those creators who are doing well by being funny.

Pathfinder International’s “No Joke. Choice Matters”

Change Agent Award – Awarded for the best use of video to tell compelling, moving stories.

Raf Bauer who lost his mother to cancer and is setting out on a 350km walk across Scotland to raise awareness and funds for Target Ovarian Cancer.

ImpactX Award – A video and short essay category for creators who want to describe the impact their video had on their cause.

END 7’s “How to Shock a Celebrity”

Congrats to all of the winners, and we hope you’ll be inspired to enter next year! And just follow the frog.

    Really?! Yes, the Follow the Frog video was clever, but the message was that the way to make a difference is go shopping! Pretty offensive if you ask me. (As was the racist scene of the main character getting branded by a native tribe…)

  • I am not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for fantastic info I was looking for this info for my mission.

  • Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful info being shared freely out there.

  • An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not talk about such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

  • Hey there! I just would like to give you a huge thumbs up for the excellent information you’ve got here on this post. I will be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • It’s nearly impossible to find educated people on this subject, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  • I was excited to uncover this site. I want to to thank you for ones time for this wonderful read!! I definitely loved every part of it and I have you bookmarked to look at new information in your web site.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here. The sketch is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an shakiness over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this increase.

  • I think this is among the most vital info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But wanna remark on some general things, The website style is ideal, the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers

  • Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • You have made some decent points there. I checked on the web for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.

  • I have been checking out some of your posts and i can state clever stuff. I will make sure to bookmark your website.

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.
