OVERVIEW:

On November 5, 2012, we organized a Pitch Night to give benevolent media creators a chance to showcase their pitches and proposals in captivating 3-minute presentations, for a chance to win cash prizes to make their idea a reality.

About 100 people joined us for a night of sharing about how to make the world a better place through storytelling and design.

A distinguished panel of judges voted on the Grand Prize winner ($2,000.)

The rest of the audience also got to cast their vote on what project to fund with a People’s Choice Award, using a portion of the money pooled from the price of admission ($5 from each person’s ticket.)

This event was held during Digital Capital Week, a weeklong festival in Washington, D.C. focused on bringing together designers, developers, entrepreneurs and social innovators of all kinds.
