GSMCON2022: Golden Post Awards nominations open through Feb. 3

Jan 12, 2022

Share your agency’s social media accomplishments and be recognized for your dedicated work by submitting your entry for the Golden Post Awards now through 11:59 p.m. PT Thursday, February 3.

New for 2022 – U.S. Federal government agencies are now eligible to enter!

This awards program is exclusively designed to honor outstanding use of social media by government agencies in the U.S. There is no cost to government agencies to submit entries because we strongly feel awards should be given on merit, not on the ability of the agency to pay a fee. Our award program features 10 categories focusing on social media strategy, presence and success, and is open for eligible government agencies to enter in the United States. 

We’re bringing back our in-person Golden Post Awards ceremony at the 2022 Government Social Media Conference! Happening March 29-31, GSMCON2022 is the largest social media conference in the United States for government agencies and will be held in-person in Dallas, Texas, with both in-person and virtual tickets available. 

Led by co-chairs Jessie Brown and Chelsea Sawyer, our 2022 Award Committee is hard at work planning a memorable ceremony celebrating the work of social media professionals during the conference. Awards finalists will be posted in early March and will receive a certificate, and category winners will be announced during the Golden Post Awards ceremony on Wednesday, March 30 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, TX, where winners receive an engraved trophy. 

Only registered GSMCON2022 attendees will be able to participate in the ceremony, so we encourage you to register to attend GSMCON! Registration for a virtual ticket also allows entry to watch the live streamed award ceremony for those not attending the conference in person.
