Press Release

Please use this background information for your publicity purposes


The Folio Awards recognize quality news on the Long Island hyperlocal, New York metro regional and National news levels. Social media campaigns from anywhere are eligible, but must seek to inform, educate or inspire to qualify for entry.


Began in the 1980s as a way to encourage and reward Long Island news, the Folio Awards have expanded over the years. Social media campaigns that do good began to be recognized due to social media’s ability to give voice to all. Expansion of news categories to include New York regional and National news (to be clear, these two levels of entries do not have a Long Island requirement) recognizes news that impacts us all, such as climate change and water quality, and encourages quality coverage of the issues to keep us all connected and informed. 


Today, the Folio Awards are recognized as the gold standard for today’s modern media landscape.
