  • Free Nominations close on June 7th at 3pm
  • Agencies: One client, one nomination. Keep all the client work in one nomination, do not mix clients into one nomination or the nomination will not be accepted. You can use a different email per client.
  • A company can enter in up to 5 categories. You cannot enter a company/client in a section twice e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Video, Strategy/Campaign.
  • You cannot enter the Agency, Team or Grand Prix categories, they are chosen by a panel.
  • Late entries (up to 48 hours) incur an admin fee of €200 per category and need to be paid upfront. Asking us to edit your nomination after entries close also incurs this fee. So don’t be late!
  • Late entries from June 8th to June 10th are €200 per category. Late entries from June 10th are €400 per category.
  • Your entry will be judged by the public and social media enthusiasts.
  • Our contact email is team@sockies.ie but we won’t answer emails about extensions or exceptions and you may not get an answer if we think your question has already been answered here.
  • Be careful when copying and pasting with the word count. Delete any white spaces before first and last words. Links are counted by our word counter. Our counter over-counts so consider max word count at about 90%. If it says you are over by 4 words, delete 5 words. We get most questions about this bit.
  • Use http://www.charactercountonline.com/ for word count. The entry only counts words after you click out of it. MS Word does not count links.
