It’s V-Day for Muck Rack’s Vine Journalism Awards

VineLogoIf you have not already nominated yourself or a fellow journalist via Twitter using the hashtag #VineAwards, there’s not much time left. The submission deadline for the inaugural Vine Journalism Awards, an endeavor that triangulates the App with Muck Rack and Twitter, is 5 p.m. ET today.

From there, the impressive panel of Rachel Sklar (Change the Ratio), Jeanne Brooks (Online Media Association) and Bob Garfield (NPR’s On the Media) will judge what they feel are the best examples of micro-video reporting. The results will be announced next Wednesday at Twitter NYC headquarters:

Mark Luckie, manager of journalism and news and Andrew Fitzgerald, interim head of news, will be on hand to lead the discussion and share Vine best practices.

Food and cocktails will be provided and we encourage you to Vine the event and your fellow attendees.

Of course. You can take a look here at the stream of Twitter nominations, which includes one all the way from Hong Kong based WSJ Live producer Diana Jou. Good luck to all entrants.
