News & Social Media Award Deadline Dec. 20

The Fair Media Council’s Folio Awards, honoring the best in news and social media, has a new entry deadline of midnight, Dec. 20, 2016 via FMC’s online entry system.

Any news outlet or freelancer may enter the news categories, but some or all of a news story must be Long Island specific. Social media categories are open to the news media, freelancers, businesses and nonprofits, and have no Long Island-focus requirements.

FMC is introducing the following news categories:

  • Watchdog news
  • Public Service news
  • Public Policy news
  • Animal Welfare news & features
  • Disability news & features
  • Immigration news & features

The social media categories have nearly doubled since their introduction more than five years ago. Now, the Folio Awards social media category includes:

  • Public service
  • Best promoter
  • Pinterest Master
  • Media Upstart
  • Community Service
