Better Together Deadline Approaching

With just over a week to go to the closing date for the Better Together Competition you may feel you have missed the boat. Fear not!

You still have time to create a short video that could net your organisation one of six €1,000 cash prizes and Adobe software bundles for your cause. Remember, any charity, voluntary groups, NGO or club can take part by entering a short video (time limit: 2 minutes).

But making a video is a big commitment, right? Wrong.

Here are four easy projects you can easily fit in over the coming days:

  1. Instagram Video: delve into Ireland’s fastest growing social network and shoot a short video (up to 60 sec) on your phone with the Instagram app. It can be an interview, footage of an event, a tour of your facilities or whatever your imagination can cook up. Download the app, shoot, copy the link and complete the entry form. Simple.
  2. Edit an existing video on YouTube: do you already have videos on YouTube? Are they longer than two minutes? This blog shows you how to shorten them in a few minutes using YouTube's built-in editor.   
  3. Photo slideshow: use a few photos to create an beautiful animated photo slideshow. Build your own with few clicks at www.animoto.com or www.kizoa.com.  Download your masterpiece and upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo.
  4. Animation: create a swanky animation with just words, icons and colours atwww.spark.adobe.com. No skills required!

See, you don’t need any special skills or expensive equipment to take part – just smartphone and a good story. Download our free guide for more tips and advice.

Don't miss this chance to raise awareness, recruit new supporters and win cash for your cause! But hurry, entries close on Monday, 7 November at 5pm.
