For the past five years, we've been running the Forrester Groundswell Awards to recognize the companies that do the best job using social media — and last year we added an international category for the first time. We were thrilled to recognize some fantastic international social media programs in 2010 — from companies who both used social technologies in an innovative way and were able to show how their social programs helped build brand awareness, develop new products and services, or generate leads and sales — and I'm excited to see the entries we receive for 2011.
If you think you (or your clients) have used social media exceptionally well in the past year, and the program was targeted to consumers outside the US, we'd love to see your entry. Feel free to browse the rules here and to submit your entry here — just remember our deadline is August 3rd. So get busy with those entries — and good luck!
