SoMe Awards slated to recognize social-media-eratti April 23

Social Media AwardsHey! Wow! Look at him now! It’s Zuckerman’s famous….

Oh wait. Sorry all that talk of “some awards” and social media—and who knows probably bacon—got me in the wrong frame of mind.

Let’s get back on track, shall we? We shall.

I just heard that registration is now open for the SoMe Awards, the social media awards running in conjunction with InnoTech, this month.

What are the SoMe Awards, you ask?

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.”

Categories include Superstar, House Party, Next Big Thing, Scrappy, Sugar Daddy, Bloviater, and Wildcard.

The event will be held on the evening of April 23 at Candy at 904 NW Couch (for the life of me, I couldn’t find a Web site for this joint). What’s that mean? That’s right. No social media award for them.

Cost? Admission will run you $15. But that gets you two drink tickets and some stuff on which to nom.

Interested? Act fast. There’s only room to wedge 230 folks in there—and no doubt word of the event is going to be proliferated through that-there social media—so please register for the SoMe Awards ceremony as soon as you can.

Wait a sec. Who got nominated? That’s forthcoming. When I know, you’ll know.
