GlobalGiving is thrilled to announce the grand prize winner of this year’s video contest and our four runner-ups! We had the thrill of watching more than 60 fantastic videos submitted by our nonprofit partners and it was very difficult to choose just five to be featured.

Our grand prize winner is…Concern Worldwide USTheir incredibly moving video about the aftermath and clean-up of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal was chosen as the top film by our judges at Backpacker Films. Here is a short comment from our judges:

“Nepal – Responding and Beyond conveys to the audience why it’s necessary to be aware of devastating events across the globe and whom it affects most.  Moreover, we see why it’s necessary to contribute time and funds to help alleviate the challenges of those caught in the middle of disasters like the Earthquake in Nepal.   Congrats to Concern Worldwide for creating an excellent film”
