The World Media AwardsWe are proud to support and announce that on February 25th, 2012, the first ever World Media Awards will be held in San Fransisco, CA. We have spoken with Murray Newlands, co-founder of the event, and we agreed to have Murray guest post on our blog! Not only is it an honor to have Murray be a part of our blog, it is also great that you, our readers, will be able to find our more about this event! Enjoy!

There are actually so many outstanding bloggers and publishers doing very good work, and those who stand out deserve to have their hard work recognized, associate with each other, and see their readerships’ grow. That’s why the World Media Awards exist; to recognize and reward great contributions to media from bloggers and publishers.

In my own career, I’ve learned and benefited so much from others that I wanted to help build some way to give back to an industry I love and to show appreciation to the up-and-coming leaders. The World Media Awards will culminate in a one day event in San Francisco that will celebrate the best in blogging, forums, publishing and media from around the world.

So if you are a superb blogger, why should you enter?  

  • Get Recognized- You Deserve It 🙂

You put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making your blog spectacular. You understand it and your readers know it. The World Media Awards is a way for you to get authoritative credit from other bloggers and industry experts. That recognition will help you increase your readership, make new collaborative connections, and hopefully have great moments that make all the late nights even more rewarding. 

  • Meet Other Bloggers Who Care

Blogging, forums and most other online media is about conversation and interaction, but sometimes it’s easy to end up pecking away behind a screen in your office or home all alone. Meeting other bloggers and publishers keeps the fire lit and the conversation going. When you enter the World Media Awards, you’ll be listed alongside other bloggers and publishers who put the same level of pride, attention and work into making their blog great. 

  • Expose Yourself to New Partners

If your blog or forum is part of your business, being part of the World Media Awards will increase your exposure by putting your name in front of the thousands of visitors to our site and the award ceremony. That means you can find out who else is doing great work, strut your own stuff, and expand your network of contacts and collaborators. 

  • Make Yourself Irresistible to Clients

What helps your chances at winning that next pitch more than expanding your network? Telling that network that you just won a World Media Award. Winning an award shines a light on your achievements, and it serves as an example of the commitment, engagement and standards you apply to your work.
