Sponsors & Supporters

Community champions and responsible corporate citizens sponsor our annual Folio Awards. Sponsorship not only offers high-visibility recognition but enhances a brand’s image by helping to combat one of the biggest issues of our time: The need for quality news and social media in an era of disinformation and fake news.

Why Enter the Folio awards?

The Folio Award illustrates recognition by industry professionals and news consumers — or, as we like to say, it’s where critical acclaim meets box office success. National and New York regional news of any topic may be entered, along with Long Island hyperlocal news stories. Our requirements for social media campaigns are different: We seek campaigns from anywhere that educate, inspire, or enlighten.
