30 Second Ad Challenge

The Missoula Gives 30-second Ad Challenge is a great way to tell people about the great work your organization does to benefit our community. In order to participate in the challenge you will need to create a 30 Second Ad and promote this Ad to your constituents. Winning Ads will be showcased on our social media and run on KPAX Media the week of Missoula Gives (social media, streaming, and television). This  video  can also be used on your giving day profile, in your future marketing efforts, and more.  Share your stories and show us what you do. Submissions will be voted on by the public, so you will have an opportunity to push your supporters to vote for you. The top finalists will have their video aired on local television. You can do this, it doesn't have to be professionally done. Submitted videos for the 30-second Ad Challenge will be aired on our social media leading up to and during May 4-5.


If you want some help in creating your video the wonderful team at MCAT is there to help. Please call and schedule some studio time, they can help you with green screens, production, and video editing. They have a studio space at the Missoula Public Library. 

In order to have a finished video to submit by April 12, 2023, all studio production needs to be completed by April 7th.


You will need to create an account for Submittable to fill out the MCAT form. This is the same platform you will use to submit your 30 Second Ad.



These are really important to follow so that we can ensure your video meets both technical and content wise to be aired on television.
