There is no cash prize, but the winning videos get their moment in the spotlight when they are showcased on YouTube’s popular Spotlight channel. In addition each winner will receive a free registration to the 2016 Nonprofit Technology Conference from NTEN.
The awards, now in their ninth year, were founded by See3 Communications. They are open to individuals and organisations in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland and Australia. In other words, the countries in which YouTube’s Nonprofit Programme applies.
