MEA is also submitting a call for judges. All MEA members are eligible to be a judge. No special skills are required; we will match judges with the category best suited to their particular experience and level of expertise. We also ensure there is no conflict of interest between judges and the nominees. (Member companies are welcomed and encouraged to compete in other categories where they do not have a company representative already judging.) Judges must have access to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. Please volunteer before September 23, 2016.
The MEA Member Social Media Awards program is an initiative of the MEA Emerging Professionals Group.
