Community Foundation Wins Top Honors For Compelling Videos

September 3, 2020

Community Foundation of Broward videos that tell the stories of local philanthropy’s bold impact have been honored with seven 2020 Videographer Awards – an international competition judged by the Association of Marking and Communication Professionals.

The Community Foundation creates award-winning videos like these to showcase how our Fundholders make a real difference and to raise awareness about Broward’s Issues That Matter – challenges that affect us all and are vital to Broward’s future.

This year, the Community Foundation won top honors for “Marjory Stoneman Douglas Survival Stories: Healing With Art.”  This compelling video features an exhibition of photos and audio recordings of students, teachers and others affected by the Feb. 14, 2018 school shooting in Parkland that claimed 17 lives. Support from our Fundholders helped make the powerful exhibition possible. Our video about Fundholders’ visit to the exhibition was honored twice with the Award of Excellence, which goes to just 13 percent of the 1,500 entries.

In addition, two Community Foundation videos won the Award of Distinction, the second highest honor, which goes to only 14 percent of entries. Those videos included:

  • “Soft Skills, Strong Future” – which shows how our Fundholders support for Youth Work teaches young people skills to land part-time jobs and internships that help them build career skills.
  • “2020 Legacy Society Luncheon” – which raises awareness about climate change in Broward and also showcases an event where we honor philanthropists who include testamentary gifts in their estate plans.

Also, the Community Foundation received Honorable Mention awards for:

  • “Inclusion, Acceptance … and Science!” – which received two awards for showcasing how support from the Community Foundation helped the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale improve outreach to the LGBTQ community.
  • “2019 Community Builder Celebration” – which features visionary local philanthropists who have joined the ranks of our Community Builders by creating an endowed charitable Fund at the Foundation with $1 million or more.

This is the 24th annual Videographer Awards, which honor video production that “exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.” The seven awards we won this year builds on the five awards we won in last year’s competition.

We are proud that the Community Foundation’s award-winning video production is considered among the best of our nonprofit peers across the country.

Producing high quality, informative videos – which are posted on our website, shared on social media and shown at Community Foundation events – is just one of the ways we inform, empower and connect our Fundholders. They are also an innovative tool to raise awareness about Broward’s big challenges and spread the word about the power of local philanthropy.
