Shorty Awards Are Open for Nominations. Who Will You Tweet For?
The Shorty Awards celebrates the best people, companies and organizations on Twitter and in social media, and it's up to you to nominate your favorites in 30 official categories for the 3rd annual event. The Shorty Awards is a real ceremony that will take place in March in New York City, but first, you need to decide who's up for what.
Right now, the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, the Jonas Brothers, Chris Colfer, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Emma Watson are leading in multiple categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Celebrity.
You can nominate as many different people as you want for as many categories as you wish, all by sending out a tweet with a hash-tagged category and reason for your vote (yes, you must include a reason). Check out all the ways to craft your tweet here.
Do you love the kind of tweets Ashley Tisdale sends? Is J.K. Rowling your favorite author? Maybe you're really into the way the NHL uses their social media platforms to spread the word about games and news. Choose your favorite celebs and organizations and support them by casting your vote.
The nomination process is well underway, and will close at the end of January. In February, six finalists will be chosen for each category and winners will be determined by your votes and by the members of the Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences.
