Direct A Club Short and Win the Diamond Director Award

Video has become one of the dominant mediums of the internet in large part because of the high engagement it drives. More than ever marketing teams are investing in video content and Toastmasters clubs should be no different. Utilizing video as a part of your club’s marketing strategy can drive more guests to your club by showing them Toastmasters instead of just telling them about Toastmasters.

At each year’s Spring Conference the district recognizes the outstanding work of VPPRs and their committees in creating club videos by selecting one club to receive the Diamond Director Award, for the district’s best club video. 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.

To submit a club video send a link to your club’s video to before April 30, 2018. The video must have been produced within this Toastmasters’ year and you cannot resubmit a previously produced video.
