Deadline approaching for Better Together Video Competition

21 october 2016

Better Together is an annual campaign that aims to build support for community and voluntary organisations, clubs and associations across Ireland by encouraging the public to support good causes and make a difference in their communities. This year, Dóchas is proud to support the Better Together competition as an official non-profit partner. 

Here are some of the details for how the competition works:

Shoot your short video on a smartphone, digital camera or create a photo montage (the sky is the limit). You can even enter a video that is already posted on Youtube, Vimeo or Instagram.  As long as your video is no longer than two minutes.

Ideally, your video should show:

1. What you do

2. Why it is important to your community

3. How the public can support you

Upload your video to Youtube, Vimeo or Instagram and head over to to complete the entry form. Your video will be posted on your own profile page, where you can promote your work. Last year 450,000 people watched the videos – that’s lot of potential supporters!

The public are voting for their favourite videos, and the five videos with the most votes in each of the six categories will be shortlisted and a winner will be selected in each. The winners will be announced at the Better Together Awards in Dublin on 14 December.

Six cash prizes of €1,000 each and bundles Adobe photo and video editing software are up for grabs.
