Awarded for "Honoring the best of social media"
Country United States
Presented by Sawhorse Media
First awarded February 11, 2009; 7 years ago (2009-02-11)
Official website shortyawards.com

The Shorty Awards, also known as the "Shortys", is an annual awards event, recognizing the people and organizations producing real-time short form content across Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, and the rest of the social web.

The awards are organized by the co-founders of startup company Sawhorse Media.[1] Greg Galant is CEO and Co-founder and Lee Semel is CTO and Co-founder of Sawhorse Media.[2] Since their creation in 2008, the awards have expanded beyond Twitter to recognize content creation on other social networking sites, including YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Vine, Snapchat, YouNow, Periscope and Facebook.[3]

An awards ceremony is held each spring and streamed live. Each award recognizes the entire body of work of the content creator for the calendar year, rather than an individual tweet or post. A 2012 Forbes magazine article about the awards commented: "The Shortys recognize that social media is about more than who can get the most followers ... we are creating millions of pieces of new writing that will define our generation. ... These writings ... are creating our history of record."[4]

First Annual Shorty Awards[edit]

The awards were created in 2008 by tech entrepreneurs Greg Galant, Adam Varga, and Lee Semel of Sawhorse Media.[5][6] They invited Twitter account holders to nominate the best twitterers in general categories such as humor, news, food, and design.[7] Winners were chosen by more than 30,000 twitterers during the voting period.[5] The founders of Twitter first heard about the awards after the contest had gotten underway, and expressed support for it.[5]

The first Shorty Awards ceremony was held on February 11, 2009, at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, New York. Approximately 300 people attended the event.[8] The event was hosted by CNN anchor Rick Sanchez and featured in-person guest appearances by prominent Twitter users MC Hammer and Gary Vaynerchuk and a video appearance by Shaquille O'Neal.[9][10] The awards, which were voted on by Twitter users, were distributed in 26 categories.[5] At the ceremony, the true identity of advertising category winner @PeggyOlson was revealed to be Carri Bugbee, owner of the public relations company Big Deal PR in Portland, Oregon.[11]

Second Annual Shorty Awards[edit]

Voting for the second Shorty Awards opened on January 5, 2010, in 26 official categories. A Real-Time Photo of the Year category was added to the list of official categories for the first time, recognizing the best photo posted to services such as Twitpic, Yfrog, or Facebook.[12][13]

The second Shorty Awards competition introduced a panel of judges called the Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences whose members were Craig Newmark, David Pogue, Kurt Andersen, Caterina Fake, Joi Ito, Frank Moss, Alberto Ibargüen, Sreenath Sreenivasan, MC Hammer, Alyssa Milano and Jimmy Wales. After public nominations determined the finalists, the Academy decided on the winners.

Winners were announced at a ceremony held in the Times Center in The New York Times building in Manhattan, and were streamed online. The ceremony was hosted by CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, who presented awards in the official categories as well as the newly added Real-Time Photo of the Year and a special humanitarian award.[14]
