Join us for our virtual awards
April 28, 2022 

You're invited to the 6th Annual Shorthand Awards!

The Shorthand Awards were founded to recognise the best-of-the-best digital stories published on the web around the world. The awards are a celebration of the craft of digital storytelling — both the incredible stories and the people that create them.

Join us as our expert judges announce the winners, while you enjoy an afternoon beverage with our inspiring global storytelling community. This year we are honoured to have a keynote speaker, Dee Anna McPherson. Dee Anna is Shorthand’s newest member of its Board of Directors and Chief Marketing Officer at Invoca (more on the keynote below). 

Stick around to hear from Shorthand CEO Ricky Robinson, who will be making a surprise product announcement (or two)!

For the second year in a row, the award ceremony will run as a virtual experience. To cater for attendees around the world, we are running two sessions.

Register for the session most convenient for you.

Fighting for attention: How to capture and engage your audience in the micro-niche and diminishing attention span world

The potential avenues and channels to find and engage your audience are growing rapidly, while the time your audience is willing to give is declining. This presents a huge challenge for marketing and communication leaders. However, this challenge also presents opportunities...

Dee Anna will share thoughts on how organisations can successfully find, engage, and captivate their audiences now and in the future.

We will then announce the award finalists and winners for each category as our virtual guests enjoy a celebratory beverage.
