The Shorty Award
for Social Media's Best

When they’re not taking shots of the Rocky Mountains, cute babies, models, and more, they’re using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and blogs to share their pics and book new gigs. This category is for those professional photographers who always manage to get the shot whether they’re using the the newest lenses or just their smartphone. Nominate your favorite for #Photographer!

This category will have 7 finalists. These include 3 with the most nominations from the public, 3 chosen by the Shorty Awards Nominating Board made up of professional journalists from around the world, and 1 Wildcard Finalist. See our rules page for more info.
