Nonprofit organizations take note: YouTube and See3 Communications are now accepting submissions for the 2012 DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards, an annual event to showcase and reward some of the best video work from nonprofits.
The awards will honor nonprofits in four categories: Best Small Organization, Best Medium Organization, Best Large Organization, and Best Storytelling Video. The winner of each category will be awarded several prizes, such as monetary compensation as well as a featured spot on YouTube's homepage on April 5th. See YouTube's video about this year's contest for more information:
This is the 6th year for the DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards and the third year that YouTube has partnered with See3 Communcations in order to present the event. The window to submit is only this month - as in, February 2012 - and all videos must be submitted by the 29th of this month (good thing it's a leap year so you have an extra day to get those videos in). In order to submit, though, you are required to be a member of YouTube's Nonprofit Program. The winning videos for each category will be selected via public vote between March 14 and March 28 and the winners will be announced April 5.
