There are some people who are just so stellar on social media, they deserve an award. Luckily, there is one!
The Shorty Awards are accepting nominations as we speak, with the trophy to be handed out on April 8th at an event in New York City. Award categories include fashion, education, humor, sports, and nonprofit. There’s no cost to tossing someone’s hat in the ring (even your own) and you can, in the spirit of a social media award, promote your nominee (including yourself) online.
Past winners include Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Conan O’Brien. We’ve been to a couple of the ceremonies — this is the fifth year — and it typically draws a crowd from companies large and small, entertainment (The Daily Show correspondents have served as the MCs at least twice), media, and simply people who are incredibly active in the social world.
Below is an intro video with a look at some of the past honorees. Anyone out there going to participate?
