So SoMe: Social Media Awards launched to coincide with InnoTech


Social Media AwardsLooking for a little recognition of your prowess in social media? I have an award for you, my friend.

The Social Media Club of Portland, SEMpdx, the Software Association of Oregon (SAO), and InnoTech have joined forces to launch “SoMe Awards: Your Social Media Awards,” an award designed to recognize “outstanding social media projects and the people who created them.”

No, despite the date, I’m not joking. I did that already.

Oh okay. So here’s one more little joke and then we can get on with reality.

Social Media prowess

The SoMe Award (whose URL someawards.com reminds me of someecards, which prompted me to use the image above) will be held Thursday, April 23, at InnoTech.

Want to register yourself, a client, or a friend? Simply head over to the SoMe Award nomination form before midnight on April 11. Categories include Superstar, House Party, Next Big Thing, Scrappy, Sugar Daddy, Bloviater, and Wildcard.

What are they looking for?

We encourage nominees to make it EASY for the judges to review your work and provide as much detail as necessary. We advise a landing page or micro-site that explains why your project is award-worthy and walks the judges through the elements you want them to be aware of (no word-count limitations here). This is the place to make your pitch! Highlight your creativity, ground-breaking ideas, coding artistry, marketing effectiveness, statistics – whatever is most award-worthy about your project. Don’t assume judges will click through elements you have not highlighted as important! Be clear about what they should look at.

Note: the judges are from another state and likely will not know the nominees to make the process as impartial as possible.

So get all your social ducks in a row and fill out the form. Or get your clients to nominate you. I think you could use a new trophy on your desk. Or to haul around with you from coffee shop to coffee shop.

Like this post? There are more. Every week.
Plus events, jobs, and community offers.
