POST UPDATED 25TH JUNE
After the excitement generated by #PowerPlayers14 we’ve decided to reflect on peoples contribution to digital housing one final time this year at House Party in Manchester on 24th June.
This is a time of huge change in the public sector and the importance of social and digital technology has never been so important.
Despite the success of #powerplayers14 – the housing sector still has a mountain to climb in embracing new ways of working and thinking. Once you open the door to social media you have begun to change the nature of your organisation. There’s no going back.
We are now turning the spotlight away from the list itself and towards the difference that has been made. These are awards for the people and organisations who are doing something new and making a difference.
The categories for this year are:
Social Media Campaign: Which campaign has most effectively used digital to promote social housing for social good?
Best Blogger: Which are the posts you just HAVE to read?
Rising Star: Which newcomer (or nearly newcomer…) has made a powerful mark in #ukhousing for their use of digital?
National Social Superstar: We’ll have winners for Wales, England , Scotland and Northern Ireland. Who are they and why?
Digital Innovation of the Year: Which person or organisation has used digital to really make a difference for their customers? What have they done differently?
Super Connector of the Year: Who’s the person who has most effectively used digital to break down barriers between sectors?
Anybody can make a nomination. All you have to do is to state who you are nominating, the category & the reason. You can post your nomination with a comment in the blog or use Twitter with the hashtag #powerplayers14.
This is completely crowdsourced – nominations can be made up to 5.00pm on the 24th June.
This being a socially savvy event all awards will be virtual and tweeted out to winners live!
You can follow events via the hashtag #hseparty14.
We look forward to hearing the nominations!
