Congratulations to the winners of PR Daily’s 2013 Video Awards

We asked to see your best business videos. You showed us how to do video right.

Whether it was video of a NFL player visiting a children’s hospital or of the $75,000 half-court winning shot that went viral, all entries revealed the power of video to tell a story memorably and communicate with an audience.

The entries flooded in. Our judges reviewed all of them. Scores were tallied. It all comes down to this: The announcement of the winners of the 2013 Video Awards.

The staff of PR Daily would like to thank everyone who shared their work with us. We can only imagine how many hours of brainstorming, taping and editing went into your work. Your creativity, resourcefulness and skill give us great hope for video in business communications and set the bar high for next year.

We must thank Qumu for sponsoring the first-ever PR Daily Video Awards and for being the judge of our Grand Prize category!

Qumu's twelve year video tenure and their laser focus on video in the enterprise makes them uniquely qualified to choose our Grand Prize winner.

Qumu’s VP and General Manager, Vern Hanzlik, recently launched an online video show, “How Business Does Video.” In the show, he interviews people with unique perspectives on enterprise video, discusses the trends that affect the enterprise video industry, and answers questions from viewers across the globe.
