It’s that time of year again!
If you followed my #ImageAwards coverage last year, you’ll remember that I relish the annual opportunity to immerse myself in Black Hollywood and generate major social results for our Nominees and sponsors! This year, as a Multimedia Editor/Social Media Correspondent, I stepped up my game even further to:
- Grow the Twitter audience by 1,000+ users (26K – 27.1K) over 2 days of tweeting
- Create and deliver over 50+ tweets of #ImageAwards moments, including acceptance speeches, standing ovations, red carpet looks, shoutouts, live tweets and sponsored content
- Capture and re-share high-quality DSLR imagery and iPhone photo on red carpet, backstage
- Curate and edit video and image assets for Facebook and Twitter
- Engage with celebrity nominees (actors, directors, producers) and sponsor brands in person and online, including: Hidden Figures, Octavia Spencer, Barry Jenkins, black-ish ABC, Anthony Anderson, Marsai Martin, Yara Shahidi, Viola Davis, Luke Cage Netflix, Insecure HBO, Queen Sugar OWN
- Attend the Nominee Luncheon, Non Televised Awards Dinner, 48th NAACP Image Awards
My personal objective was to highlight our celebrity nominees, create seamless ties for our sponsors, entertain at-home audiences and propel #ImageAwards to the top. Here’s how:
And as a young photographer and artist, that gesture means the world.
I won’t inundate you all with additional content but instead leave you with these final words: The Image Awards are the one week in which I remember without limitation why I am so blessed to be black and how much Images matter. Image is Everything.
See You Next Year,
