THE 14TH ANNUAL SHORTY AWARDS

The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media and digital. View this season's finalists!

From the 6th Annual Shorty Awards Tumblr of the Year

Some of the best ideas require a little more than 140 characters and a dash of multimedia to be expressed. Microblogs on platforms such as Tumblr have flourished, enabling entirely new possibilities for creativity by allowing users to quickly share images, thoughts, quotes, and videos.

This award recognizes those who have used a microblogging platform in a unique, impactful, and interesting way to the delight of its audience.

To be eligible for a nomination, all blogs must have been made in Tumbr and must be active in 2013
