The Diamond Director Award was created to encourage clubs to explore using video as a medium to promote the club. Video consumption on the internet has grown rapidly and Toastmasters clubs can use video to give visitors to their club website a peek into the personality of the club. The purpose of the Diamond Director award is to build a 30 - 60 second infomercial for the club. Please do not submit a recording of a club meeting for this contest. Instead get creative, tell a story through the video and give your viewer a call to action.
The contest for the Diamond Director award is open to all VPs of Public Relations (and their committee members) in District 4 Toastmasters. The video submitted must be an original entry for the current contest. More than one video may be entered in the contest by a club.
To enter the contest, please send an e-mail message to the Public Relations Manager firstname.lastname@example.org stating their intention to enter. Please provide a link to the video.
Entries will be judged on the site's content and design, with the emphasis clearly on the quality of the content presented by the site, as follows:
Content - 60%
Story line (30%)
Call to Action (10%)
Technical excellence (20%)
Coolness Factor & Potential to Go Viral (20%)
To be eligible, entries must be sent to the Public Relations Manager email@example.com by October 24 for the Fall contest, and by April 30 for the Spring contest.
