TechSoup Global will kick off their annual Online Digital Storytelling Challenge January 13, 2011. Last year, over 100 organizations participated, with top submissions earning prizes from Flip Video, Adobe, Flickr, and GoldMail.
The goal of the project is ”to help nonprofits think creatively about using technology to fulfill their missions, without having a fear of technology and by learning a new skill with an element of fun,” says Susan Tenby, Director, Online Community and Social Media Team, TechSoup Global.
The event has an educational component and leaves participants with marketing materials they can continue to use to support their fundraising, online presence, and marketing efforts.
Organizations are given several weeks to create a 60 second video or photo submission, showcasing their mission and work. No production or storytelling experience is necessary. Leading up to event, TechSoup will provide free webinars on tools and strategies for creating your digital story, featuring leading nonprofit, media, and communications experts. Organizations will also be able to share resources and participate using the #TSDigs tag across social media channels, such as Delicious.com, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube. Learn more!
