SMEs get a chance to put their best foot forward at #Sockies
This year's Bord Gais social media awards includes two categories for SMEs, giving them a chance to showcase their campaigns.
The so-called #sockies take place at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on June 5 and entries need to be submitted to www.socialmediaawards.com by 5pm on April 18. More than 400 submissions were received last year and the organisers expect to beat that figure in 2014.
"We hope that with the focus on SMEs and the inclusion of some new categories, this year's event will be our biggest and most successful yet," said Damien Mulley, founder of the awards.
The two SME categories are best use of social media and best blog.
Independent.ie and Irish Independent are media sponsors of the awards – follow @indobusiness for updates. Pictured among the sock puppets at the final call for entries were Damien Mulley, founder of the awards; with awards host, 2FM DJ Rick O'Shea; and Eoin O'Suilleabhain, Bord Gais Energy digital and social media manager.
