If you are twittering around Dublin last night you would have seen the #sockies hashtag trending. This is the hashtag for the Social Media Awards. As finalists, we attended the grand ceremony last night at the Mansion House. We were up against OMG Jedward’s Dream Factory on TRTÉ, @Lokofotodotcom St Patrick’s Day and Captain Morgan – Dare the Captain! for the Best PR Campaign.
So as you can guess the competition was tough. We lost against Jedward so it is not really losing, is it? No matter what the result was we were really delighted to hear “And the nominees are : STAR Translation and Jedward”
You could just about hear our name amongst the cheers for the nominees as they came up on the big screen.
This is our first time being a finalist in such an event so we simply enjoyed this moment sharing a few words and fun with the other nominees. It was great to meet our competitor, customers and partners on the same night. We had fun chatting about blogging with Amanda from spiderworking.com, the event organizer Damien Mulley, and the infamous Rick O’Shea and lots of others. We will be there next year!
