New York, April 12, 2016
Today The Incite Group announced the shortlist for the Corporate Social Media Awards 2016.
The 2016 shortlist represents the very best of the hundreds of entries, received from brands all over the world. The finalists will be celebrated alongside the announcement of the winners at a glamorous awards dinner ceremony in New York on June 20th.
The awards predominantly recognise excellence across industry, but we believe it is also important to benchmark against the specific conditions and restrictions related to individual industries. Due to this a number of new additional Industry awards have been introduced into categories that received an abundance of strong entries from a specific Industry.
The finalists will now face a judging panel that includes social media leaders from Mashable, Whole Foods, Comcast, Ogilvy, Sky and Tui, in order to decide the final winners.
The Awards ceremony and gala dinner will be taking place on June 20, 2016. The night will bring together 150+ social media leaders who will be the first to know the winners of this year's awards. On top of this they'll enjoy a glamorous night of entertainment, a 3-course meal and celebratory drinks. Find out more here.
