Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2007
The Society for New Communications Research (http://www.sncr.org), a nonprofit global think tank dedicated to the advanced study of new media and emerging modes of communication, today announces its call for entries for its 2007 Excellence in New Communications Awards program. The deadline for submissions and nominations is September 28, 2007.
The prestigious awards recognize innovative organizations and individuals who are pioneering the use of new media and communications and social media (i.e. blogs, wikis, podcasts, online video collaborative tools and other new and emerging communications technologies) in the areas of marketing, public relations and internal communications, advertising, media, politics, entertainment, academics, community and cultural development.
The 2007 Excellence in New Communications Awards will be presented at the SNCR Research Symposium & Awards Gala, December 5-6, 2007 in Boston, MA. The leading award winners will be featured in presentations at the Symposium program. Additionally, all of the award-winning case studies will be published in the New Communications Review (http://www.newcommreview.com).
Awards will be granted in six divisions: Corporate, Government, Media, Nonprofit/NGO, Professional (Individual) and Academic in seven categories: Blog, Podcast, Video, Wiki and Collaborative Tools, Community and Virtual Worlds, Mobile Media and Technology Innovation.
In addition, the SNCR Fellows will choose their "Picks of the Year" for the Best New Communicator of the Year, Best New Community of the Year, Social Media Product Innovation of the Year, SNCR Person of the Year and SNCR Organization of the Year.
"The impact and influence of new media has challenged all of us to re-think the status quo, particularly in the areas of communications and marketing. The good news is that many organizations and individuals are already successfully doing this, and it's my hope that the SNCR Excellence in New Communications Awards will continue to help surface and showcase the thought leadership and imagination that people are pouring into a variety of innovative and successful projects," said Mike Manuel, chair of the SNCR best practices and awards committee.
The deadline for awards entries is September 28, 2007. The online submission form can be found at http://www.sncr.org/awards2007. For more information, contact the SNCR at (650) 331-0083.
