Land8: Landscape Architects Network announces the inaugural Land8 Social Media Awards for Landscape Architecture. Land8 was founded as an online hub for landscape architecture professionals to interact with each other. It has since grown to an international community of not only landscape architects, but also those interested in learning about the field of landscape architecture with over 1.5 million followers across Land8’s social media channels. Social media has the power to significantly increase the awareness and importance of the profession of landscape architecture, and we believe industry leaders in social media should be promoted and recognized.
Eight (8) awards will be given and ranked in each of the following categories:
- Top 8 Social Media Accounts, Landscape Architecture Firms
- Top 8 Social Media Accounts, Individual Landscape Architects (or landscape designer with landscape architecture degree or student in landscape architecture)
- Top 8 Social Media Accounts, Allied Partners (those supporting work related or promoting landscape architecture, such as nonprofits, associations, universities, or vendors)
Awardees will be featured on a list of “Land8’s Best Social Media Accounts in Landscape Architecture 2018” promoted through our extensive network, and our followers will be encouraged to follow the awarded accounts.
Land8 will judge social media accounts on the following: Visual Excellence, Influence, Engagement, and Promotion of Landscape Architecture. This may include popular mediums, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or blogs. Only public accounts will be considered.
