NPQ is preparing a special issue of its magazine on innovative practices in nonprofit communications.

And, as we are doing this, we know that there are thousands of nonprofit experiments with communication going on around the country. So we thought, Why not run a contest to surface some of the more interesting ones? Please feel free to submit both successes and failures, but if you submit a failure, make sure to include a lesson for the rest of us!

We are looking for new types of communications in the following areas:

  • Board
  • Staff
  • Volunteers
  • Constituents and community
  • Donors
  • Institutional funders (foundations, etc.)
  • Nation
  • Globe
  • Other

 Submit a piece of 100–400 or so words, and let us know:

  • What kind of organization you are—your size and where you are situated;
  • What you wanted to accomplish—what problem you wanted to solve with a new communications form;
  • What you did differently, and what tools you used; and
  • What the results were

Contest winners will be featured in both our print journal and online!
