We had nearly 100 entries in the 2key Network Inspiration contest. I'm thrilled because this means 100 of you worked on creating a concise crowdsourcing campaign, something most marketers find difficult. But it can be done, right? I hope this was a helpful exercise for you.
Of course, it was very difficult narrowing down the entries. Don't feel bad if I didn't choose yours. There were quite a few outstanding ones in the mix, but I was only able to select one out of every five entries, so the odds were not so high.
Of course, picking the winners was an exercise in objectivity and subjectivity (Design & Creativity, for example). But note that the Campaigns I chose each presented an inspiring cause and a clear conflict. Occasionally they break the "formula" but still succeeded because of the way their masterful use of humor, pain, or intrigue to build interest in their campaign.
Thanks to everyone for participating, and again, I really hope this gave you the motivation to create a campaign for the business you always wanted to open or the charity you're dying to help out!
Here, with my brief comments, from last to first, are…

15. Be a Pal, - Help Us Transfer an Animal. - Stranded Animals Near Taal Volcano - by @livethelife

2. Take your place among the angels that give life to our children. - by @foundationforchildrenwithleukemia
This campaign really touched my heart. LÖSEV Foundation for Children with Leukemia was established in 1998. The organiztion has grown into a family, making every effort to provide educational, financial, psychological and health support to children and their families. On September 2000, LÖSEV opened the first hospital in Turkey for leukemic children. A school for children with leukemia has also been established, and much more!
LÖSEV is a non-profit NGO, mainly aiming to provide educational and emotional support, financial assistance and health services for children who have leukemia or chronic blood disorders, in order to help them cope with a life-threatening illness.
That is an example for an exceptional campaign in all the ways - storytelling, distribution, design, creativity - truly amazing work!
1. Revolution : Catapulting our sluggish judicial system. - by @revolution
Our #1 choice in the contest is a campaign that only started on February 6th, just a few days before the contest ended.
Revolution aims to change the long bureaucracy that causes injustice in the courts. It comes from the feeling of pain and injustice, as sometimes we fill the court system doesn't make any sense. For example the Nirbhaya case that hasn't been settled until today, though the victim waas raped and died from her injuries after a few days. that was 7 years ago!
Revolution aims to decentralize law and justice for the everyday people, so that cases wouldn't drag for decades, no corruption can happen, and crime rate will go down.
This campaign reached the first place in 3 different categories - Chain length, Impressions and Amont of Ropsten ETH raised. All that in just a few days - proves that anyone can do it!
Well done, You're the winner!
