Land8: Landscape Architects Network announces the 5th Annual Social Media Awards in Landscape Architecture, co-presented with the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Land8 was founded as an online hub for landscape architecture professionals to interact with each other. The following 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 2022”, 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 over the last year. This may include popular platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and/or blogs. Only public accounts will be considered.
