Why Enter the Folio awards?

The Folio Awards recognize high-quality social media work that educates, enlightens or inspires.  Winning not only means you have mastered the art form but know how to find, speak to and engage your audience. The hallmark behind the Folio Awards is our judging, which includes industry professionals, community leaders and social media users.

Criteria and Rules for Social Media

Anyone anywhere may enter the Folio Awards for Social Media. Professionals and students are equally welcome to submit (simply check off the proper category on the submission form).

Social media, online work and podcasts that do good — educate, enlighten or inspire — are what we seek. Campaigns that are purely promotional will be disqualified.

Categories change from year to year, so please review the list before you begin your submission. If you believe your work may be entered into more than one category, you are welcome to do that. Please note an entry fee applies to each category submission.

Industry professionals, community leaders and social media users will judge entries using FMC’s specially designed scorecard, which emphasizes quality, presentation and engagement. 

Campaigns that ran during part or all of the previous calendar year are eligible. Judges want to see quantitative results, so please have data to complete your entry form. 

Be sure to have correct spelling of names and titles, proper name of campaign to be entered, and publication dates. 

A brief synopsis of the strategy and goals behind each entry is also required, along with data to illustrate engagement and reach of your entry.

The information that you submit on your entry form will be used in published materials, should your entry win, so be sure to check your entry BEFORE you hit that send button. There will be no preview screen.

Entry fees apply. If entering the same work in more than one category, a fee applies for each category. We use a tiered entry system to encourage early submissions.

Email info@fairmediacouncil.org with any questions, or call 516-224-1860, ext. 1. (Please note holiday hours will be in effect from Christmas through New Year’s, so please review entry requirements accordingly.)
