How Winners are Selected

  • The finalists (the top 6 most nominated candidates) from the most popular, interesting and relevant Featured Categories will be presented to the Real-Time Academy, who will choose which finalists win the Shorty Award for each of these categories.
  • While number of nominations determines who the finalists are, it’s only one factor The Academy uses in choosing the winner (see considerations below). Fill out your Shorty Awards profile to tell The Academy why you should win.
  • Separately, whoever receives the most nominations in each Featured Category will be honored on ShortyAwards.com as the Shorty Vox Populi, a special distinction for the peoples’ choice.
