The #SocialFitness Shorty Award, honors an individual who helps others make healthy choices in their lives through their influence on social media. The ideal #SocialFitness award nominee uses Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, or the social web to motivate others to champion health by taking actions like sharing milestones, healthful recipes, safe weight-loss strategies, exercise tips and motivational support from friends and followers.
The #SocialFitness Shorty Award winner will be selected by the #SocialFitness Jury on the Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences, which include the following health icons: Nick Cannon, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Michele Promaulayko and Bill Phillips. The winner will be based on the total number of nominations received, the impact and creativity of the nominee's tweets, and innovation in the use of social media.
