The Wheel’s annual Better Together video competition is on again and you have until November 21st to submit your entry. It’s a really nice opportunity for charities, non profits, community organisations, clubs etc to showcase your work and demonstrate your impact. And in fact, impact is the theme for 2016.
Videos can be ‘Epics’ (2 mins long) or ‘Shorts’ (60 seconds long). Once submitted, videos are added to the Better Together site and put up to the public vote. There’s prizes for the winners, of cash or technology to create further videos.
If you’ve left it till the last minute (I can relate!) , here’s a few easy-to-use video creation tools that will get your video done quick-smart:
- Adobe Spark creates videos with images and slides, kind of like animated slideshows. It’s free and incredibly easy to use. I used it to create this one for Irish Charity Lab, and this one for Barnardos.
- Videoscribe lets you create animated videos in the whiteboard style. It comes with illustrations and music you can use so you can start completely from scratch. It’s €15 a month for charities, and you can cancel once your video is done. I used it to create this animation for Barnardos.
