If you are submitting the same work in several different categories, we recommend you create separate video submissions, each one highlighting whatever is important for each category.
Nowadays, nothing will work without loads of social network activity, 24/7! That is the effort we will be rewarding in this category – the best Facebook pages, visually spectacular Instagram profiles, WhatsApp campaigns and everything else fitting into this category. Applicants can submit pages they have been managing at least three months prior to SoMo application date, and the judges will be reviewing results no older than September 2019.
CM of the Year
All the endless work on social networks and its burden fall on the backs of community managers. They are diplomats, capable communicators, performance experts, excellent sellers, and digital specialists, all at the same time. We will be rewarding them in the CM of the Year category. They can be nominated by agencies, clients or themselves in case they are freelancers. The nominated person needs to be active in the community manager position for more than six months prior to the SoMo application date, and the judges will review results no older than September 2019. Each community manager application needs to refer to managing a page/profile of a single brand/company. The same person can apply multiple times for different brands/pages they are managing.
These days, it is impossible to reach one’s audience without good-quality content. That is why the SoMo Content category rewards the best content marketing projects. Content projects can include blogs, e-books, videos or video series, infographics, newsletters, etc. You can submit content created between September 2019 and September 2020.
Reaching the maximum number of users organically and earning a bunch of shares is the desire behind many a post. Some of them achieve it, and we recognize them as the best in the One-Hit Wonder category. It can be any format – text, video, visual. It is possible to submit works created in the period between September 2019 and September 2020, and the applications must contain an overview of the budget used to advertise the social media post (if it was advertised), as well as a detailed overview of the advertising statistics. As with all the other categories, the jury will judge the following: originality and creativity, execution quality, and results.
The best campaign on one or more digital platforms will collect their SoMo Borac in this particular category. Platforms can include social networks, mobile apps, sites, IoT and anything else we consider digital. For this particular category, it is important to show the strategic approach to your campaign. If there was an offline portion of the campaign, you can show it; however, the jury will judge only the campaign’s digital elements. It is possible to submit works created in the period between September 2019 and September 2020.
The SoMo Tech category rewards the best application of technology. Virtual reality and the Internet of Things are just some of the buzzwords you’ll find here, but you can run into “older” platforms as well. You can submit works created between September 2019 and September 2020.
Websites are still the cornerstone of the digital world! Sooner or later, all users end up on a website, which is why it is extremely important to give it your full attention. Regardless of whether it is a corporate or project-related website, it gets submitted in this category. You can submit works created between September 2019 and September 2020.
