Social Media has gradually emerged as the most powerful tool this generation has ever held. It is of great essence to the patrons of these mediums that, at a point, positive impacts made by other users be recognised.
In view of such an inspiring development, EoD Partners Inc. designed a scheme that recognises and awards the positive impact of social media personalities and brands called #TAG AWARDS.
The main focus is to encourage the interactive and value based use of social media. The maiden edition as championed by The Centre for Social Media Influencing of EoD outlined categories and criteria for choosing a winner.
This forms the sole academy for selecting, monitoring and choosing winners for the #TAG Awards. The Centre for Social Media Influencing is made up of social media influencers that pay attention to details, technicalities and other indicators affecting the digital space. One of the primary functions of this sector is offering practical training and skills acquisition in Digital Media Leadership.
The Academy selects profiles based on the parameters available to them, which include interactions, impacts, value creation, relevance, innovation and trends. The exclusive voting process is instituted to generate the final winners for the awards.
After an indoor brainstorming and series of consultations, the final list was released on Kelly Nii Lartey Mensa’s (CEO of EoD Partners Inc) Facebook Wall. This communique is to announce the official list of the winners on this day Wednesday, 16th November 2016.
For prizes, winners will receive customised citations from EoD Partners Inc. whose details will be communicated appropriately.
