Whats it all about?

The 4th Annual #WorcestershireHour Social Media Awards & Christmas Party sponsored by SW&A Accountants is on Thursday 13th December 2018 at Bank House Hotel, Bransford, Worcestershire. This is our chance to showcase the good and the great of Social Media in 2018 and celebrate together just 11 days before Christmas Eve. Live entertainment will also make the evening go with a swing!

Tickets are available individually (just £30.00) or you can buy a table of 10 (£240). Choice of menu and the bar will be open throughout the evening. Dress code is up to you but we recommend Black Tie & Christmas Party Outfits.

Get Involved – We are looking for Category Sponsors!

For the full list of categories see the nominations page.


In a change for 2018. As some businesses/charities nominated last year did not want to take part we have made the decision that for 2018 the Social Media Awards requires ‘SELF NOMINATION’. If you would like to enter the awards fill out the form below indicating which category or categories you wish to be considered for. We reserve the right to remove nominees from categories we do not deem them suitable for BUT we may also add nominees to additional categories.

The Awards are FREE to enter providing at least one ticket is purchased for the Awards Evening. You will be required to purchase at least one ticket when registering your nomination and further tickets can be purchased at a later date (subject to availability).

Nomination Deadline is 31st October 2018. To ensure a level playing field, businesses/charities that use an external Social Media Management Company cannot enter the awards themselves BUT they can nominate their supplier in the NEW ‘Best Social Media Management Company’ category. When any business or charity is nominated they will be asked to clarify if they use an external partner.

Judging Process

There will be a public vote throughout the month of November 2018

For most categories, the awards will be 75% weighted, based on public vote & 25% weighted on evidence review by Judging Panel. This excludes Biggest Deal Done Via #WorcestershireHour, the Sponsor’s Award & the Founder’s Award categories which are not open to the public vote.

All entrants must have a relevant and valid connection to Worcestershire. This could include A registered office address, a physical office, shop or other facility based in the County, employees that reside in Worcestershire.

Please note that simply having client’s in Worcestershire is not deemed a relevant and valid connection for the purposes of the award

How to vote

Voting will starts in November 2018

You can only vote once in each category. Simply select your ‘winners’ and when you are ready press the “Vote” button.
Best of luck to all those nominated!
