Within the context of the GERMAN WEB VIDEO AWARD 2014, the crowdsourcing expert, clickworker, will check all the clips submitted for the award and verify whether they fulfill the selection criteria. This assignment is linked to a large-scale charity project: The organizer of the award, the European Web Video Academy, is donating 15 cents to the Children’s Hospice Regenbogenland for every video that clickworker views.
clickworker GmbH, based in Essen, has supported the GERMAN WEB VIDEO AWARD for the second year in succession and checks all the videos and clips submitted with regard to the fulfillment of the participation criteria. clickworker has set up this time-consuming task as an online project free of charge. Based on the principles of crowdsourcing, the videos are available for download on the online platform at www.clickworker.com for thousands of committed network members, the so-called “Clickworkers”, who process them on a voluntary basis. With regard to the charitable aspect: Every video counts! Because the European Web Video Academy, the organizer of the GERMAN WEB VIDEO AWARD 2014, is donating 15 cents to the Children’s Hospice Regenbogenland in Düsseldorf for every web clip that has been viewed.
This year, the GERMAN WEB VIDEO AWARD has acknowledged innovative and outstanding works in the field of Internet moving images for the fourth time. It addresses both amateurs as well as professional video artists. The kickoff for the submission of web clips started on February 3. The organizer is anticipating several thousand submissions on www.webvideopreis.de. The Clickworkers’ task is to check whether the videos fulfill all the conditions for participation in the contest. The content must for instance be produced between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, and must be released on the Internet and must not violate valid law or youth protection legislation.
