You can nominate anyone that is employed by a brand organization and has played an integral role in the development and production of content for their brand. You know who these folks are; the ones who go to bat for budgets, spend tireless hours on set, work with their agency, content and media partners to produce exceptional content. They are the ones sticking their necks out there day after day because they love what they do and they believe good things come to brands who stop interrupting and start creating stuff people will love and benefit from. Yup, you know who they are. They might even be you!
We think it is high-time that the individuals that are actually driving the business of brand-funded content get their time in the sun. We want to identify these people and illuminate their work. Nominations will be reviewed by the Brand Storytelling advisors and the best of the best will be included on the first-ever Brand Storytelling Honor Roll that will be announced on January 24th during the 5th annual Brand Storytelling at Sundance Film Festival in Deer Valley, Utah.
Questions? Glad you asked…
Who is eligible for the Brand Storytelling Honor Roll?
Anyone who is actively employed by a brand organization (including non-profits) that has played an integral role in the development and production of content.
What sort of content must the individual be responsible for?
It could be any form of content, including; video, text, audio, live events, short form, long form, etc. It all will be considered.
How will the Honorees be chosen?
Nominations are being accepted now and will be reviewed by the Brand Storytelling advisors. They will vote for the individuals they believe are most worthy of inclusion. Remember, Honorees are individuals doing the work, not the brand itself.
How will work be judged?
It’s an honor roll, so the individuals chosen will be considered based on their year of work, not just one project. Honor rolls in school are GPA based. It’s sort of like that.
When will the Honor Roll be announced?
On January 24, 2020 during Brand Storytelling at Sundance. Each honoree will be featured onstage and samples of their work will be displayed on-screen for all attendees. Following the announcements, an evening party will ensue with food, drink and celebration!
How will the Honor Roll be publicized?
We want the world to know about these honorees and the great work they are responsible for. Here’s what we have planned:
• Acknowledge honorees on stage during Brand Storytelling 2020 at Sundance Film Festival
• Major PR push to trades and business journals
• Dedicated space on BrandStorytelling.tv featuring honorees and their work
• Full page print ad in Variety magazine
• BrandVoice article on Forbes.com
• Social Media push on our channels
What do nominations cost?
There is no cost to nominate! Just visit BrandStorytelling.tv and nominate your friend, boss, co-worker, or even YOURSELF!
How detailed is the nomination?
It’s simple. We want a short narrative telling us why your nominee should be included and a maximum of three links to samples of work. That’s it. It’s short, simple and FREE – nominate anyone you like, including yourself.
