The UK Social Media Awards celebrate the very best in UK social media communications and reward the individuals, companies and organisations who are using online platforms to communicate in fresh and innovative ways.

In a time where we need to connect more than ever, social media opens up opportunities to communicate, engage and motivate on a global scale. We want to reward those who have created and delivered great campaigns over the past 12 months, and look forward to celebrating your achievements together.

The categories are open to all corporate, creative, design, digital, marketing, advertising, media and public relations organisations that are based in the UK. Entries are open until Friday 24 July 2020.

The awards will be judged by an esteemed panel of industry leaders and experts. The judging is a rigorous two stage process including pre-scoring to determine shortlists and a judging meeting where entries are discussed and evaluated in detail to decide the winners.

Event Announcement

As we’re sure you are already aware, the latest Government announcement with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic has confirmed that social gatherings above six will be banned in England from Monday 14 September.

Unfortunately, this news has made it impossible for us to continue planning for the 2020 awards as a live event and we have therefore taken the difficult decision to move the awards online. This is not the outcome we’d hoped for but one we feel is necessary to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff.

So, the winners will be announced on Tuesday 13 October 2020 via social media announcements from 1PM BST. We’ll be tagging you in relevant posts throughout the afternoon, so make sure you tune in to see if you’re a 2020 winner!
