Generocity.org's 2nd Annual DoGooder Awards University of the Arts, Hamilton Hall March 12, 2014
Following months of work by filmmakers and nonprofit organizations, the second annual Philly DoGooder Awards came to a close last night with a ceremony and bash at the University of the Arts.
As a partner and host of the event, Generocity is happy to see so much collaboration and pride in Philadelphia’s social good community.
Winners were announced and clips of the winning videos were shown. The event was a chance for hardworking organizations and individuals, who usually work with little fanfare or recognition, to celebrate their work.
The original DoGooder Awards, founded by See3, is a contest in which nonprofits submit videos to spread their message, educate the public and hone their image.
In 2013, Generocity and the creative agency Here’s My Chance partnered to launch a Philadelphia chapter of DoGooder. We then added the element of partnering nonprofits with filmmakers and bringing them together for hackathons.
The effect has been high-quality videos and a successful example of for-profits and nonprofits teaming up.
And without further ado, here are the winners:
Winner: Episcopal Community Services Youth Program, film by Alex Levin
2nd place: Pre-K for PA, film by Nic Justice
Winner: Diversified Community Services, film by James Davis
