The Sprout Spotlight Awards recognizes great people behind great social, and right now we’re highlighting those who are Community Builders. These are community managers whose duties go beyond responding to comments, they’re the architects of your online community, building your audience every day.
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.
Who has built a community that makes you feel like family? Who shows up for their audience when they’re needed most? Who is always there to listen, share resources and support their community?
If you’ve ever felt connected to a brand, this is your opportunity to honor the people behind the work that inspires you every day.
