“Hollywood has the Oscars. Broadway has the Tonys. Now Twitter has the…Shorty Awards” – The New York Times
The Shorty Awards honour the best people and organizations on Twitter. These unique awards are for the Twitter community, by the Twitter community. Online voting is public and democratic, culminating in an awards ceremony that recognizes the winners in 27 official categories as well as those in brand new crowd-sourced ones.
About the Process
The second annual Shorty Awards nomination process has begun! In January 2010, the community is invited to nominate Twitter users for excellence over the past year. The awards recognize each content creator’s entire body of work, not just an individual tweet. Nominations are made by sending a tweet, whether it’s through this site or on Twitter.
In February, the nominees will be narrowed down to five finalists in each category. Winners will be determined by a combination of popular vote and by the members of the new Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences.
Ok, lets cut straight to the chase. I want people to vote for CSR. I’m not going to complain if you want to vote for me, but this is a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of great work and great people across Twitterland that have added real energy to the CSR agenda.
My favourite CSR Twitter people during 2009 worth considering for your vote are as follows:
@davidcoethica – smaller businesses & sport expert and all round CSR believer
@elainecohen – insightful & humourous csr reporting expert and chunky monkey fanatic!
@fabianpattberg – great news, opinion and online forum
@realizedworth – Chris Jarvis – top CSR and corporate volunteering expert
@timberland_jeff – Jeff Swartz (Timberland CEO) – inspirational business leader who exemplifies what CSR can (& should) look like & accessible via Twitter!
