Win a £10,000 video campaign!

rockadove 1

Rockadove Video Production and WCVA are partnering up to showcase the power of video marketing.

Charities, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations in Wales will have the chance to win a £10,000 video marketing campaign as part of the brand new Rockadove Third Sector Prize, launched last week. 

Leading Welsh video production agency, Rockadove is giving away the £10,000 video project as part of the company’s tenth year celebrations. Working in partnership with Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), the prize will see a third sector organisation supported with a complete video marketing campaign worth £10,000 – devised, scripted, produced, distributed and evaluated by Rockadove – totally free of charge.

Lloyd Morgan, Rockadove’s owner and managing director, announced the prize at WCVA’s gofod3 event last week (21 March), saying: ‘We wanted to do something special to kick start our tenth year celebrations, so we decided to work with the third sector to showcase just how effective video can be in that space and make a real difference to that organisation in the process. 

‘If you are a charity, social enterprise and not-for-profit working in Wales, please get in touch and tell us about your next big project or an issue you face. Or a policy you need to promote. If we think video can help, you could win a complete video campaign. 

‘Facebook alone generates around 8 billion video views each day. We want to make sure that Wales’ third sector organisations tap into that. We have a fantastic, hard-working third sector here in Wales and we can’t wait to get started.’

Phil Fiander, Deputy Chief Executive of WCVA said: ‘The Rockadove Third Sector Prize is an excellent opportunity for third sector organisations in Wales to tell their story. We know there are some incredible things happening across Wales and it’s often the groups in the sector that don’t have any budget for video marketing that have the most inspiring stories to tell. WCVA is really excited to be part of this new prize and helping third sector organisations to bring their work to life.’ 

Entries received before the 1 May deadline will be shortlisted by the team at Rockadove before the judging panel makes the final decision. 

For more information and to enter, visit www.rockadove.co.uk/tsp before 6pm on 1 May 2019.
