For four-and-a-half years, Street Fight has been the go-to resource for people working in local media, marketing, commerce and tech. We’ve brought you the best, most valuable information about this dynamic industry to help uncover and promote the emerging sustainable business models in local.
Building on that history, today we are launching our first ever annual awards, the Local Visionary Awards, a 10-category competition designed to honor the very best campaigns and ideas in local. With these awards, we are looking to shine a light on the best practices and most innovative companies working in local today.
The awards will be presented to winners as part of the program on Oct. 20th in New York City at Street Fight Summit 2015. So not only will this year’s NYC Summit bring together top-level executives for the key insights, networking, and great mixers — but we’ll also be taking time out to acknowledge individuals and brands whose contributions are moving the industry forward.
The awards will recognize achievement in several categories, including:
- Products & Services — acknowledging tech solutions for both SMBs and enterprise brands
- Campaigns — across multiple channels including mobile, and use of data for targeting
- Partnerships — to reward collaboration between players in space
- Innovator of the Year — honoring an individual who has made significant contributions to the field
The esteemed panel judging the competition includes Street Fight’s research director, David Card, as well as PagePart CEO Randy Parker, Closely CEO Perry Evans, and WPP’s Gwen Morrison. For the Innovator of the Year award, Street Fight will crowdsource the nominees through an open poll available on the Street Fight website.
Submissions will be accepted from August 10, 2015 through September 18, 2015. Finalists will be notified on October 1st, and winners will be announced live at Street Fight Summit. Organizations of all sizes as well as individuals are encouraged to participate.
