Do You Want To Be a Social Media Star?

April 15, 2012 Blog 2 comments

If so, nominate yourself for the 5th annual Singapore Blog Awards!

Organised by, SPH’s leading bilingual news and entertainment portal, the Singapore Blog Awards recognises “new-age wordsmiths” with the passion, determination, and energy to “create and maintain informative and innovative blogs”.
Other than achieving online acclaim and popularity (get ready to flash your pearlies), you may stand to win a trip to the annual International Fireworks Festival in Macau and other neat prizes worth a total of $30,000!

To increase your chances of winning, there are a total of 15 categories of blogs for you to choose from:

10 Main Categories
• Panasonic Eco Best Photography Blog
• Panasonic Eco Best Lifestyle Blog
• Panasonic Best Y-Bloggist
• Casio Sheen Best Fashion Blog
• Domino’s Best Food Blog
• SOLD.SG Best What-The-Hell Blog
• Best Individual Blog
• Best Travel Blog
• Best Family Blog
• Best V-log *NEW*

Two Celebrity Categories
• Panasonic Most Popular Local Celebrity Blog/Microblog
• Panasonic Most Popular Overseas Celebrity Blog/Microblog

Three Sponsored Categories
• Gmarket Best Online Shopping Blog
• Mary Chia Best Beauty Blog
• ST701 Best Blogshop

As you can see, there are more sponsored categories this year so you can be sure that the prizes would be fabulous!

What’s new this year is the “Best V-log” award which I have the honour of judging – in case you do not know, I’m one of the privileged judges for the awards yet again this year. This award is specially created to acknowledge all bloggers who also produce user-generated videos on YouTube or other video streaming sites to enrich their digital storytelling capabilities.

(Incidentally, I do have a YouTube channel that – surprise, surprise – garnered more than 500,000 views to date. Of course, not every video is a hit…)

To add more online and offline buzz, the super hardworking team is also organising the Singapore Social Media Fiesta. There will be an activity every month from April to July 2012, beginning with the Singapore Check-In Bonanza, Singapore Twitter Frenzy, Singapore Social Media Day, and the Singapore Blog Awards ceremony held at Singapore Flyer – the world’s largest observation wheel.

Phew! These guys are running us ragged, albeit in a good way! 🙂

Nominate and register your blog
from now until 6 May and stand a chance to enter the glorious and hallowed halls of social media stardom.  Perhaps what may be most rewarding (at least in my view) is that you will also meet lots of warm, friendly and happening bloggers just like you.
