Voting recently opened for the 2016 SoMe Awards, which honor the best in Baton Rouge-area social media. We actually received nearly four times as many entries this year as compared to last year, which is a testament to the many great things happening on social media in Baton Rouge. Below is a quick rundown of information you will need to vote and celebrate our winners.
To vote, visit brsocme.org/VOTE and complete our SurveyMonkey by the end of the day on January 17, 2017. Each page is a different category and will start with screenshots and links to the finalists, with a voting form at the bottom of the page. Anyone with the link can vote. You don’t have to be a BRSocMe member.
There are 10 categories and then a People’s Choice award, where anyone who entered is eligible. (People’s Choice is question 11.) Now that the judges have selected the finalists, the awards are completely up for grabs — only the public’s votes count from here on out.
We will announce the winners at the 2016 Awards Ceremony at 6 p.m. at the Pelican House on January 19, 2017. You can buy tickets for the event here. (The winners will find out when everyone else does!) It’ll be a fun night of awards and networking. You can also pay your BRSocMe dues and meet the 2017 Board of Directors. We hope to see you there.
