Rusty Radiator Awards 2014
The awards for the worst and the best charity videos will be announced out the 2nd of December. The international award ceremony will be held in Oslo, and will also be streamed online.
In 2013 SAIH established its own award for the most harmful and the most creative charity videos: The Rusty Radiator & The Golden Radiator Awards. The purpose of this international award is to shed light on and change the way large aid organisations communicate. The idea evolved through SAIH's work with our view of the South and the music video Radi-Aid: Africa for Norway from 2012.

This Year’s Nominees
The nominated charity videos are selected by this year's international jury, who represents different interest fields from different parts of the world.
The Rusty Radiator Award goes to the charity video which contains the most stereotypical images. This type of communication is an unfair presentation of the people in the campaign, hindering long-term development and the fight against poverty.
This year’s nominees for the Rusty Radiator are Save the Children USA, Concern Worldwide, Christian Children's Fund Canada, and Feed a Child South Africa.
The Golden Radiator Award goes to the most creative charity video, which manages to spread its message without the use of stereotypical images. This year’s nominees in this category are Save The Children UK, Oxfam and SOS Children's Villages Norway.
Remember to vote for your favourites – within November 30th!
