If used wisely, Twitter is an amazing tool to help DPA and NMA winners and nominees expand their network and help spread the word about their awards and their work in general. The NMAF is pleased to present the second volume of our Best Practices Guide, Sharpen Your Twitter Skills.
To help DPA and NMA winners – publishers, writers, and creators – make the most of Twitter, we’ve created a guide dedicated entirely to this social media tool! From Twitter Moments to hashtags, our experts share their secrets to optimize tweets and build a strong community of followers.
The guide details how journalists can use Twitter to incite conversation, the goldmine of information within Twitter analytics, and an example of a highly successful Twitter campaign. It shares anecdotes on how NMA and DPA award-winners, such as Desmond Cole, have created space on Twitter for meaningful dialogues, and advice from Chatelaine’s social media senior editor, Haley Overland: “Build your audience… every damn day.” To start building that audience and expand your digital reach, click here to download our 2017 Best Practices Guide.
About Winners’ Circle
In November 2016, the National Media Awards Foundation presented the second Winners’ Circle event, an exclusive activity for DPA and NMA winners and nominees to meet, mingle, pitch, and learn. We partnered with Twitter Canada for this event, at which Jennifer Hollett (Twitter Canada’s head of news and government) spoke on growing your Twitter presence.
Please stay tuned for when we announce our next Winners’ Circle event. For updates, you can follow the DPAs on Twitter and Facebook.
