No physical event this year, sadly, thus minimal nomination charges to cover trophies and other costs.

Read all of the below because our support replies are very sarcastic. team@sockies.ie will get us.
An email from team@sockies.ie will be sent to you to verify your entry. If you don’t verify it, your nominations won’t go through. Check spam.
Hitting the word count? Just hyphenate-some-of-the-words
This covers your social media work from July 2019 to end of July 2020.
We suggest copying and pasting your entry into a Word document just in case anything goes wrong as you’re nominating.
Use http://www.charactercountonline.com/ for word count. The form only counts words after you click out of that section. MS Word is a terrible word counter.

Agencies: For each client, use a different nomination email. 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 your 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.

This is a form for two different organisation types. The first half is for NGOs, SMEs and Public Bodies. Categories 1-22.
The second half is for large businesses, agencies and brands. Categories 23-35.
A business can enter the first or second half, not both.
Only someone from the business/org or an agreed representative can nominate them in this event.

We reserve the right to cancel, merge or edit a category based on nomination numbers. you will be reimbursed.
Look, we’re still in a pandemic, of course we’ll give you some leeway, please give us some too.

Late entries (up to 48 hours) incur an admin fee of €100 per category and need to be paid upfront. Asking us to edit your nomination after entries close is a pain so this also incurs this fee. So don’t be late!
Late entries from September 3rd are €200 per category.
Your entry will be judged by the public and social media enthusiasts.

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.

Do not use link shorteners like Bitly, our system messes them up.
You’d do us a great service by sending us clean links without all the ?fbclid=Iw stuff at the end.
