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.

The winners will be chosen through a combination of votes from the public and scores given by the Real Time Academy. Visit our rules page for more info and vote for your favorite online influencer today! Entries are also open for brands, agencies and organizations.
