Launching the no-nonsense social media awards

We’re very happy to announce to first ever Eat Sleep Social Awards, no-nonsense awards for bloody good work and bloody good people.

Every year an awful lot of rubbish gets nominated for awards, and self-styled gurus and ‘experts get handed awards for work that isn’t very good or isn’t very social. Awards are often a closed process and that have a cost associated with entry. Which is the exact antithesis of social media which encourages free and open sharing. This means that the big boys tend to dominate, with a vending machine or INSERT OTHER ANNOYING CAMPAIGN HERE picking up rafts of awards.

We’re looking to change that, or at least try to showcase work, people and agencies are doing good stuff.

It’s simple enough – you nominate the who you think deserves an award by tweeting – we’ll aggregate the tweets, create a shortlist of nominations and then open it to a vote. All open, all public and all powered by you.

Head over to to start nominating… And give us a follow whilst you’re at it
