Horse & Hound has been nominated in 5 categories in this year’s Equestrian Social Media Awards (ESMAs).

And we need your help to win!

H&H is in the mix for the following awards:

  • Best use of Facebook
  • Best use of Twitter
  • Best use of social media by a publication
  • Best social network (for the H&H forum)
  • Best use of social media in UK & Ireland

The ESMA team recieved more than 17,000 nominates, which were whittled down to a short-list of around 10 for each category.

The selections were based on the “strength of supporting statements made in nominations” and the “degree to which they are active and engaging in their online efforts”.

“We have enjoyed considerable success in the ESMAs during the past 3 years and we are hoping to build on that in 2014,” says H&H website editor, Carol Phillips. “If you enjoy our social media service, then please take a moment to vote for us this time.”

Horse & Hound was named best social media service in the UK and Ireland for the 2nd time last year, and retained both best use of social media by a publication and most informative social media service for the 3rd year in a row. The publication also won the ESMA for best use of Facebook for the first time.

Since it started in 2010, the ESMAs have “aimed to connect the global equestrian community and reward those who enrich the online world for equestrians”.

For this year’s ESMAs there are two prizes up for grabs in each category.

The first will be the Judges’ Choice ESMA, decided by an expert panel. The second is the People’s Choice ESMA — 100% decided by public vote. Place your votes now
 
Voting closes at 4pm on 7 February 2014.
