Brands & Organizations

The Shorty Awards honor the talented agencies, brands, and industry leaders behind the best and most innovative work on social media channels, campaigns, websites and applications.

Tumblr Blog of the Year

While we love all social media platforms, creators can find the specificity of some apps stifling, and just need a little space to stretch out and see their visions come to life. A Tumblr microblog is often ideal, allowing users to share all kinds of media while adding their own voices into the mix. More than any others this year, these nominees stood out for their creative and original blogs, filled with unforgettable content.

The Shorty Award for Tumblr Blog of the Year is presented by Watchable, the video streaming platform that brings the web’s best shows and networks to every device.
