The submission process for The Earnies, PR Newswire’s inaugural earned media awards program, is fully underway and only two weeks remain to submit an entry, with an extended deadline of Wednesday, January 18, 2012.
Designed to recognize innovation and creativity in successful earned media campaigns executed through social media, The Earnies is comprised of six categories including: Best Use of Video in Social Media; Best Connection to Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook Audience; Best Case of “Lemons-to-Lemonade”; We Can’t Believe That Worked!; Best Outcome Based on Listening/Monitoring/Measurement; and The Earnies Grand Prix.
Hosted on the AGILITY@work web site, all submissions will be reviewed by an independent panel of esteemed social media thought leaders, who will narrow down the entries to three finalists per category. Finalists will be announced Monday, January 30, 2012, via AGILITY@work’s Twitter and Facebook pages, as well as the AGILITY@work web site. Final winners will be determined by community voting on the AGILITY@work web site. The Earnies Awards program, open to individuals and organizations, is being launched in the U.S., but is intended to expand globally next year.
