We are excited to announce the launch of our third-annual One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight campaign, which kicks off today and will conclude on Giving Tuesday, November 27th.

Three years ago we started One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight to highlight local nonprofits through the donation of a full production video to help spread their message and mission.

That’s where you come in: We are asking our community to nominate their favorite Portland-based nonprofit.

Tell us: 

Which groups are doing amazing work regarding current social, educational & ecological issues? Which nonprofits need the most aid? Who could benefit most from a video that highlights their hard work?

There are many answers to these questions, which is why we take it to our community to make their voices heard!

Nominations will be accepted from today, October 30th until November 11th; the top nominees will be put on a short list where the public can vote for their favorite finalist from November 13th to November 26th. Whichever finalist gets the most votes receives a completely free, full service, video production + social media package from us. The winner of One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight 2018 will be announced on Giving Tuesday, November 27th.

The goal with this program is not only to bring attention to the recipient of our video and the other finalists, but to help Portlanders remember that they have the power to impact change in creative ways. 

Make your nomination here!

Meet our past One Hundred Seconds: Spotlight Recipients:

2017 recipient: FACT OREGON

While at FACT Oregon, it was impossible not to feel how their passion for inclusivity powers every single thing that they do. From their person-centered planning process to the annual Tri4Youth All Ability Triathlon, we learned about all the ways FACT Oregon is supporting not only individuals experiencing a disability, but their families, educators, and community members as well.

2016 recipient: Sisters of the roaD

During production we felt the power of relationships between all those who visit, work, and volunteer with the organization. We learned how food justice is about so much more than access to healthy food and helped them communicate that to the public. Sisters of the Road continues to empower our community by giving them access to and ownership of their food systems.
