Social Media Awards

What’s it all about?

The Social Media Awards is an opportunity to recognise the outstanding use of #WorcestershireHour and wider social media platforms by our local businesses, charities, not for profits and public bodies.

You have the chance to be involved!

You can nominate anyone (including yourself/your business) ONCE ONLY providing the category is appropriate. All people and organisations nominated MUST be based in Worcestershire. Multiple voting is not allowed and cheating will result in disqualification.
Please note nominations and voting are now closed for 2016.

This years trophy design has been created by local artist Caro Burberry who has produced a stunning creation of Twitter wings astride a Worcester black pear. Very fitting and fantastic! Her original clay sculpture has then been cast to produce a limited edition of 15 bronze resin trophies. Each trophy will be numbered and engraved with the winners details. This is not your ‘average’ awards trophy, these are very, very special indeed.

Awards Night

Wednesday 14th December 2016 is the #WorcestershireHour Social Media Awards Evening & Christmas Party at Bank House Hotel, Bransford. The Evening of networking and partying will commence at 6.30pm.
