Update: We have postponed Social Media University and the awards, but submissions will continue to be taken until the revised planned are announced in the next few weeks. (10/12/2010)
During Social Media University in Orlando Florida on Thursday November 11, 2010 we will be announcing the winners of our first annual awards program at a special dinner attended by attendees of our first conference and membership meeting. In keeping with our focus on establishing professional standards for the social media industry and further solidifying Social Media Club's role as the leading global association of Social Media Professionals, we will be presenting awards in 3 categories:
- Social Media Brand of the Year
- Social Media Agency of the Year
- Social Media Professional of the Year
After much internal debate and in spite of the short lead time, we have realized that the best way to further promote professional standards in the social media industry was to acknowledge and reward those who truly 'get it'. There is no better way to do this then to do an awards program, and there is no better place to do this then our 1st annual conference. While future awards will only be open to members, we are opening up award submissions to all relevant social media organizations and individuals.
The submission deadline for all three awards is 5pm PST on October 15, 2010. If you believe you qualify, you may submit your organization, or yourself using the appropriate link below:
- Social Media Brand of the Year Application Form
- Social Media Agency of the Year Application Form
- Social Media Professional of the Year Application Form
We are lining up an all-star panel of judges who will be announced next week along with further details on the awards. We look forward to reviewing your submissions and seeing you in Orlando, FL in November where our keynote speaker John Hagel will explain the Power of Pull and other great speakers such as David Merman Scott, KD Paine, Tara Hunt, Jason Falls, Tom Foremski and others will be sharing their leading insights and empowering our global membership.
