We are excited to announce the nominees for the 8th Annual Shorty Awards! Congratulations to everyone!
Voting to determine the finalists and winners opens today, January 19th, 2016 and closes on February 18th at 11:59PM ET.
In order to keep up with the world of social media, the Shorty Awards process has been improved this year. Previously, the public could only make Shorty Award nominations by tweeting, and could only nominate people who had Twitter accounts. Fortunately social media has evolved since then. There are now many vibrant social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and Snapchat. Our new system is no longer limited to Twitter accounts and allows for Influencers from across the digital world to be recognized for their exemplary work on social in 2015.
