Okay guys, I am looking to enlist your help here for something I think would be cool for us to be nominated for! Now for those of you not familiar with how the Shorty Awards, here is a brief description from their website:

"The Shorty Awards honor the best people and organizations on Twitter. These unique awards are for the Twitter community, by the Twitter community. Online voting is public and democratic, culminating in an awards ceremony that recognizes the winners in 27 official categories as well as those in brand new crowd-sourced ones."

Well folks, this is the the second annual Shorty Awards and the nomination process has begun, so Jerm needs your help! These awards recognize each content creator's entire body of work, not just an individual tweet.

You can help us out by making a nomination on Twitter for @VisitTampaBay Nominations are made by sending a tweet, whether it's through this site or on Twitter.

Now I kind of got a late jump on this, but if we can get some support from our lovely Twitter and Facebook Fam, I think we can do this, as in February, the nominees will be narrowed down to five finalists in each category.

Winners are determined by a combination of popular vote and by members of the new Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences. An awards ceremony, complete with 140-character acceptance speeches, will be held in March in New York City.

That's it for now, but stay tuned in for interactive related things to do in Tampa Bay from your Tampa Bay team!
