Last week NTEN held its annual Nonprofit Technology Conference, NTC ’14, in Washington, D.C.. For the better part of three days more than 2,000 self-proclaimed, nonprofit techies-for-good learned, spoke, drank, networked and hashtagged (hashtag #14NTC) in efforts to embrace technology for uses that will make this a better world.
In addition to a variety of fun events in the “Science Fair” (the exhibit hall of the conference) Third Sector Today welcomed nonprofit attendees to take an UnSelfie at our booth to promote their cause. The person with the most Retweets won a $100 American Express Gift Card. Congratulations to our winner: Michelle Boardman, from Baltimore Museum of Art!
What is an UnSelfie, anyway? Basically, One Selfie Minus the Duckface Plus a Cause = UnSelfie. This post provides you with some more background tips for pulling it off on your own. Bottom line: It’s a fun and engaging way to involve crowds at your next event!
Our goal, as a newly launched media title, was to increase our visibility by way of participants’ social media networks. I’m sure that your nonprofit has at least one similar goal!
See if there’s anyone here that you recognize from NTC’14! And please let us know if you’ve tried this and have any more useful tips to share.
