The Progressive Source Awards recognize innovation and compelling messages in online advocacy. Our objective is to provide progressive advocacy groups and non-profits with an easily-accessed repository of Web marketing “best practices.”
The Awards are the first to recognize effective Web advocacy campaigns. Anybody can recommend a nominee for a Progressive Source Award at the Awards Web site. There are two prizes for each of seven categories. The general public can vote for the “Most Popular” Award, while a diverse panel of more than a dozen distinguished judges will also select a Judges’ Award for each category.

The background music is an instrumental piece by Hepnova. The inspiration for the piece came from my travels in the Nordic countries. In the piece, I attempt to evoke the awesome powers of nature, as well as the fragile balance of the polar regions.

I was part of the creative team of the Clash video, and worked on the localization/subtitling of the non-English versions. After our video was featured on YouTube earlier this week, the number of view counts has shot up dramatically. The video is stirring up quite a buzz online!
