Online videos have become ubiquitous in digital publishing, and rightfully so. They reach both new and existing audiences, while managing to keep those audiences captivated for a designated length of time. Videos are often easy to access, easy to watch, and very easily sharable, something digital publishers continue to strive for.

Sometimes, creating a short, succinct, punchy video in under two minutes can be challenging, but the 3 finalists in Best Online Video: Short skillfully produced engaging, interesting and informative videos, all under 120 seconds.

In this year’s Digital Publishing Awards, we split the award for Best Online Video into 3 divisions: short, feature & mini-doc. The jury for Best Online Video: Short has nominated three outstanding videos.

We invite you to add another tally to their views, and review this year’s nominees:
