Brands & Organizations

The Shorty Awards honor the talented agencies, brands, and industry leaders behind the best and most innovative work on social media channels, campaigns, websites and applications.

Best Animal

Let’s face it - if it weren’t for animals, social media simply wouldn’t be what it is today. Our furry friends have the amazing ability to warm our hearts by popping up in feeds on any platform. They could be fluffballs, they could be born with incredible mustaches, or they could even be lizards. But no matter what they are, they create some of the most entertaining moments on social media and can make the internet a truly magical place.

If you’re a brand or agency doing work in this fuzzy space, consider entering your work in the Pet & Animals brand category.
