Copeland up for 3 social media awards

16 May

The nominations closed on Friday for the first ever West Coast Social Media Awards. Copeland is now in the running for three of the magnificent beasts.

  • Best Social Media Campaign (for our Zombie Internship Contest)
  • Best Blog (the thing you’re reading)
  • Best Use of Social Media for Customer Service (I have to admit I don’t know what this one is for!)

Unfortunately we did not get nominated for Best Social Brain Fart, surely an oversight!

A public vote has now begun to determine who will be on the short-list. That list will be judged next week with the winners announced during Social Media Camp on June 3.

If you think we’re worthy of these awards, please vote here.

As I understand it, you can vote once a day, every day, until end of day May 23. We absolutely won’t be pestering you daily for votes, we promise.

You can’t have a successful contest or blog without public support. Every read, comment, tweet, share and like has helped us get these nominations.

So thank you very much.

    Looks like your blog is kicking everyone’s pants, but that comes as no surprise.

    So let’s all take a minute (literally) and seal the deal on the blog, and the other two nominations!

    Goooooo Doug!

    Hey thanks Jack! This is a week long contest and as we learned during the Fuel Lines Blog of the Year contest in Feb, an early lead means little. That said, we love the support! Cheers.

    Congrats, Doug! Off to vote now . . .

    Just to be fair I took a quick look at the other blogs that are up for the award for best blog, and it’s pretty obvious that it’s the best. When you look at how active it is, the variety of topics and contributions that are made towards students, it really is good, and that takes a hell of a lot of work. Lets get some votes!

    Jack, the awards committee has updated their regs to allow for only one vote per IP address – total. That’s easier and fairer. And we don’t have to bug people for votes which is way kinder. 🙂
