The Better Story
2018 deadline for submissions: Nov 15
2018 deadline for voting: Dec 14
The 'Better Story Awards' is an initiative of Zedem Media. They aim to honor the organizations that are creating a positive change in our world. The awards are open to any registered non-profit or business organisation engaged in CSR activities. The winner will receive a high quality animated film that will help amplify its voice.
Any registered non-profit or business organisation that is engaged in CSR activities can apply.
Non-profit organizations can apply for their ongoing / lifetime contributions or for specific projects that have been completed during the course of 2018 or during the past 2 calendar years.
Business organisations can apply by highlighting a specific CSR initiative that took place during the course of 2018 or during the past 2 calendar years. An initiative is defined as a specific project or a group of actions / contributions under a common theme.
Although good deeds don’t seek a reward, we believe that good stories need to be told and organisations that create a positive change deserve to be noticed for their ethos. These stories can help to recruit people to your cause and even inspire others to take on other initiatives.
We want to help you share your story with the world. Animation is one of the most creative, engaging and effective ways to tell a story. The prizes on offer, will amplify your voice.
A high quality, custom made animation helps non-profits communicate their story across the world and possibly attract donations and recruit like-minded individuals; for businesses with CSR initiatives, not only does it strengthen the brand positioning and marketing communication but more importantly it can help highlight the impact and results of a specific activity or even talk about the overall contribution and the motives behind the initiative itself. (Valid until July 2019)
Any organisation that submits an application will receive a 20% discount on one custom-made animation by Zedem Media. The discount can apply to any style or pricing category indicated on our website. (Valid until May 2019)
