Did your social media campaign have a WOW factor? Did it engage the right people, drive revenue, bring awareness to an important issue or mitigate a crisis? Enter the Social Media Awards through December 20!

If you answered yes, you deserve a PR News Social Media Award! Social media content itself might be ephemeral in nature, but we’re giving you the opportunity to capture and celebrate your social media successes. Enter your top campaigns and nominate the social media superstars behind those campaigns for the Social Media Team or Digital Leader of the Year Awards. This program is open to organizations of all types and sizes, worldwide.
