In celebration of Community Manager Appreciation Day, which is today, by the way, social media management solution Vitrue has established the first-ever Community Manager of The Year Award. And you can nominate yourself or your favorite community manager to be considered for the title, to be announced on Jan. 23 of next year. I’m honored to serve as one of the judges for the award, along with Community Manager Appreciation Day founder Jeremiah Owyang of Altimeter Group, Stephanie Agresta from Weber Shandwick, Vitrue’s CEO Reggie Bradford and a representative from the Word of Mouth Marketing Association‘s (WOMMA) board of directors.

To be eligible, you must be someone who spends at least 50 percent of your average work day managing, creating content for, moderating, posting and/or analyzing social streams for brands, companies or organizations. You can nominate yourself or someone else by going to the nomination form on Vitrue’s website. Qualified candidates will download a Q&A to be filled out and returned by Oct. 1, 2012. The questions will consist of strategy, best practices, theories, opinions, real-world scenarios, professional information and social marketing philosophy topics. Qualified entrants will receive Vitrue’s Social Marketing Strategy Kit as well.

The three finalists will win a trip to Las Vegas for Vitrue’s School for the Socially Gifted event at the WOMMA Summit in November. The winner will also receive their choice of the latest version of an iPad or iPhone, a three-month trial to Vitrue SRM 3.0 platform and a community manager survival kit filled with additional awards and surprises.

So nominate someone, or yourself, and show off your community management savvy. You might just be the first-ever Vitrue Community Manager of the Year!
