Video Competition: WIN Cash Prizes and Raise Your Profile!


Community and voluntary groups, clubs and associations are invited to submit their short video clip to from 16 September. Your video should tell us a story about:

  • what your organisation does,
  • why it matters to your community,
  • how the public can support your work, and
  • how we can make Ireland Better Together?

It can be a new or existing video, but it must be no longer than two minutes.

In late September we'll be be inviting the public to start voting for their favourite videos. The top 30 videos will be shortlisted in three categories (big, medium and small/voluntary) and the winners in each category will receive a cash prize.

In addition to the prize in each category, you can also use the handy built-in donation function to raise funds through the website. So whatever your weight division, there is no reason that your organisation can't take part...
