SoMe Social Media Awards 2013: And the winners are…

| May 17, 2013 | 2 Comments

The Fez Ballroom in downtown Portland was packed last night with social media creatives. Many were hoping to be called to the stage to accept an award recognizing their outstanding achievement in social media. This year’s SoMe Awards were a HUGE success and TMMPDX.COM wants to thank everyone who made the show possible. Sponsors, organizers, volunteers, nominees and WINNERS. We also would like to send our love and support to Jen Peck who was unable to attend the event. #JENWELOVEYOU!

Want to see the work?

    It would of been nice to have a framed certificate for those businesses that won “runner up” so that they could get some recognition and have something to hang in their office to give their clients & community some attention for their efforts.
