The Resource Alliance is seeking out the best fundraising video from across the world with the launch of the Gold Star Award for Non-Profit Video Advertising 2009. For the first time, the Award scheme has been extended to include online fundraising videos, not just DRTV.
Sponsored by Rapp, the Gold Star Award will be presented to the best fundraising video advert submitted from across the globe, selected by a live audience at the annual International Fundraising Congress (IFC) in Holland (20-23 October).
To make a submission, fundraising videos must be uploaded to YouTube and an online application form completed online at www.goldstar-award.com. The judging panel will select a short list of the top entries, which will then be displayed at the IFC, where delegates will again get the chance to vote for the advert they think best.
Last year’s competition for the best DRTV appeal was won in a popular vote by the UK charity NSPCC, which beat off challenges from Canadian, Mexican and other UK NGOs.
