Sprout Social

Spotlight Awards

Shining a light on the often unrecognized creators, community managers and strategists behind your favorite brands on social.

Nominate Your Favorites

The Sprout Spotlight Awards recognizes great people behind great social, and right now we’re highlighting those who are Always On. These are social media professionals who are constantly taking in the world around them, empathizing with their community and championing the power of social.

How it works

Who’s creating social content that energizes you? Who has built a community that makes you feel like family? Who is using their brand’s platform for social good? Who is launching campaigns that are so memorable you look to them for inspiration?

If you’ve liked, shared or commented “I love it!” on the posts of any brand, this is your opportunity to honor the people behind the work that inspires you every day.
