We’re starting off the new year with a bang by being nominated for three 2013 Social Media Awards ! We were technically nominated under the company category for best blog (this very one), our Facebook Transit Pet Peeve Battle  and for TransLink’s YouTube channel  last year, but the shortlisting for the final awards starts on January 10 so it feels more immediate now.
The Social Media Awards
The SMAs are the creation of the Social Media Network . The SMN serves as a conduit between university students interested in social media and the social media industry. Together with the very popular local blog Vancity Buzz , who are presenting the awards, a variety of awards are up for grabs for both the student and company categories.
If you like what we do, vote for us!
The way the awards work is that you first have to be nominated. We were nominated for the three mentioned awards in the company category in December of last year. Once nominated, anyone can vote online for who they think is the best in each category. Voting is open between 7pm on January 10 until February 21, 2013 here .
Update: Direct links to vote!
The three nominees with the most votes in each category will then move onto the finals where a panel of seven judges will decide who deserves to win each award. The winners will be announced on March 28, 2013.
We’re honoured to have been nominated alongside our colleagues at The Canada Line  and so many other talented students and companies who are making social media such an exciting and fun area to work in!
