PR Newswire has launched “The Earnies,” an award program to recognize social media campaigns with earned results. A panel will decide on finalists that will be narrowed down to category winners through voting on, you guessed it, social media.
The panel now includes David Armano, Edelman Digital’s EVP of global innovation and integration; Matt Johnston, uTest CMO; Tim Moore, SVP of Maximum and CEO of CrushIQ; Liz Strauss, SOBCon and owner of Successful-Blog.com; and Deidre Breckenridge, CEO of Pure Performance Communications.
The deadline for submissions is December 20. Categories include “Best Use of Video in Social Media” and “Best Connection to Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook Audience.” Winners will be announced via @AgilityAtWork in early 2012. This year, the program is open to U.S. candidates, but is expected to go global next year.
