Yet again, it’s time for the Bees Awards – The International Social Media Award Show – to start. And yesterday, the nominees were announced.
The nominees were found by a jury including 20 judges from 15 countries after having received an unprecedented number of entries from 33 countries.
The Bees Awards will be held in San Francisco the 3rd of May. At the show, some of the best examples of international social media marketing will be presented and awarded. The Bees Awards was created to grant recognition to the best social media communications and marketing practices. On the website, it’s possible to buy a ticket to the show, but this will also be live streamed, so that you still have a chance of being a part of the Bees Awards, if not able to attend.

There are a lot of great brands between the nominees – and again we find social media work done for large brands like IKEA and Toyota. Some are even represented several times. In the category of Best Innovation, we find the campaign of Corona Light called “Most Liked”, which we wrote about on our blog. It’s a very cool campaign, so it’s not any surprise that this one is on the list.
At Mindjumpers, we will be following the competition and keep you updated on our blog. Until then, you can go check out all the nominees on the website of the Bees Awards. Do you have any favorites?
