Finalist in Social Media Awards 2014

20 May 2014

UCC is a finalist in this year's Social Media Awards, or the ‘Sockies’ as they are more affectionately known, an annual event that seeks to reward best social media practice.

Following on from the 2013 Social Media Awards, where UCC was selected as a finalist for 'Best Use of Social Media by a State Body', this year the university succeeded in getting to the semi final stages for each of the below categories:

  • Best Facebook page for non-profit/organisation
  • Social media effectiveness
  • Use of social media by a State Body
  • Video campaign - The entry, 'UCC in 20 seconds', covers the crucial aspect of outreach to the wider community, drawing on the colourful presentation skills of UCC’s Dr Declan Kennedy and his magic show, as part of the UCCPLUS+ programme.

Colleagues in UCC International also made it to the semi final stages for Social media only campaign

The finalists were announced yesterday, and UCC has made it through to the final stage for 'Social Media Effectiveness'.
