How local creative community notables are using the web to make our city a better understood place was the driving force behind last week’s Philadelphia DoGooder Awards.

Aside from the nonprofit video awards, Mayor Michael Nutter presented three awards to a packed University of the Arts‘ Hamilton Hall, including “Innovation in Urban Mechanics,” which went to City Representative Desiree Peterkin-Bell, Nutter’s former communications director who got him on Twitter (find a video of this below), and “Innovation in Community Building,” which went to PhillyChitChat blogger and paparazzo HughE Dillon.

The Philadelphia DoGooder Awards aimed to train local nonprofits to tell their stories through video and social media. Read more about the project here. It awarded more than $50,000 in resources to the winning nonprofits, according to the organizers. Co-organizer Kevin Colahan said he hopes to bring the model to other cities.
