Land8: Landscape Architects Network announces the 4th Annual Land8 Social Media Awards in Landscape Architecture. This year, we are pleased to announce that the awards will be co-presented by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). 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. Combined, Land8 and ASLA have nearly 2 million followers across their social media channels. Social media has the power to significantly increase the awareness and importance of the profession of landscape architecture, and Land8 and ASLA believe industry leaders in social media should be recognized and promoted.
Ten (10) awards will be given and ranked in each of the following categories:
- Landscape Architecture Firms
- Individual Landscape Architects (or landscape designer with landscape architecture degree or student in landscape architecture)
- Allied Partners (those supporting work related or promoting landscape architecture, such as nonprofits, associations, universities, or manufacturers/suppliers)
Awardees will be featured on a list of “Best Social Media Accounts in Landscape Architecture 2021”, promoted through our extensive network, and our followers will be encouraged to follow the awarded accounts.
Land8 and ASLA will judge social media accounts on the following: Visual Excellence, Influence, Engagement, and Promotion of Landscape Architecture. This may include popular platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or blogs. Only public accounts will be considered.
Self nominations are due January 17, 2022 with announcement of winners on or before January 28. Nominations may be submitted from anywhere around the globe. Please submit your nominations in English. If language is a barrier in applying, please contact us.
