We're down to the final hours of nomination process for the #MLSSoshies on social media. Nominations will close on Fri., Nov. 27, and finalists and the brackets will be revealed during the week after MLS Cup 2015. So get your nominations in!
And for inspiration, here are a few examples of great selfies, family photos, cool bigger picture shots, and, of course, BFFs!
Golden Globes? Forget about it. The Webbies? Meh. American Cinema Editors’ ACE Eddies (yes, that’s a thing)? Yawn.
The end of the year’s most anticipated awards are just around the corner and you haven’t even heard of them yet. But, you’re going to want to be a part of them.
Welcome to the #MLSSoshies, a year-end extravaganza recognizing exceptional performance on social media.
You’re on social media, we’re on social media, and, of course, the players are on social media. They’re also doing a really good job on it.
We’ve created the #MLSSoshies to “like” all that’s good in the wonderful, wild, and wacky world of Major League Soccer social media.
And now, fans, we need you to help hunt down the best social posts of the season from players, and tell us who are the best MLS athletes overall on social media. Your nominations will be narrowed down by our editorial and social media team, and then you get to decide who goes home with each coveted award.
Using the hashtag #MLSSoshies fans can nominate players in five categories:
1) Most Social Player
Whether they’re on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, MySpace or all of the above, they’re just killin’ it. They’re experts with apps, filters, RTs, and are always up for sharing socially.
2) Let Me Take a #Selfie
Extend the arm. Get the look. Snap a pic. These guys are pros at the art of self-capture.
3) The Bigger Picture
There’s a whole wide world outside of soccer (we know, gasp!) and these players are capturing life beyond the pitch in the most unique ways.
4) Family Matters
Whether it's their wife, partner, kids, or pets, these players know that family is important, and they capture those quirky, cute, and downright lovable special moments with expertise.
Like a buddy-cop movie, they’ve got a partner that always shows up at the right place and the right time (when the camera clicks, obviously). Perfect pairs. Troublesome trios. Let the shenanigans ensue.
Let’s get social.
