Better Together 2012: Final Call for Entries

There is now less than a week left to submit your Video Competition and Charity Hero Award nominations for The Wheel’s Better Together Campaign (entries close at 5pm on Monday, 5 November).

The winners will be announced at the Better Together Awards on 6 December.

The Better Together Video Competition is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of your organisation; connect with members of the public; gain new supporters, fundraise and potentially win thousands of euro in cash. Any community and voluntary group, club or association can enter. All you have to do is to make a short video (two minutes or shorter) in which you tell the public what your organisation does, why it matters, and why you think we are “better together”.

Your video doesn’t have to be fancy or professionally produced; anyone can have a go - it is all about the message and creativity. You can even enter an existing video, as long it is no longer than two minutes. The public will vote for their favourite videos until 19 November. The thirty videos with the most votes will be shortlisted and a panel of judges will award three cash prizes of €3,000. Read more here.

You can also nominate a volunteer for Ireland’s Charity Hero Award.  The award celebrates people who have made an extraordinary contribution to a good cause in a voluntary capacity. Ireland’s Charity Hero will win €1,000 cash for their favourite cause. Nominate someone now.

The winners will be announced at the Better Together Awards on 6 December. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to show Ireland why your organisation matters! See www.bettertogether.ie for more.
