Social Media Week, a property of Adweek, is proud to present the first annual edition of The Creator Visionary Awards.

The recent explosion of social media platforms dominates our time and attention, because of this we’re witnessing a renaissance in creativity. Much like the cultural, scientific, and intellectual explosion during the European renaissance, the creative Renaissance we’re experiencing today is quickly reshaping how we see the world, how we interact with each other, and how we can bring joy and positivity into people’s lives.

The Creator Visionary Awards honor the remarkable individuals who have made an indelible mark on the world by unlocking the creative potential of social media.

Creators come in many forms, from social media brand marketers leading campaigns, micro-influencers who create breathtaking levels of engagement within niche communities, through the influencers and celebrities that command a global audience.

The awards will honor not just the Creators themselves, but also the marketing professionals and practitioners who play instrumental roles in support of the creator movement.

In future years entries will be accepted across a number of categories but for the first edition we’ve decided to carefully hand-select nominees from the entire industry across 25 categories.

Winners will be selected by an external jury of some of our most respected colleagues in the industry and celebrated at Social Media Week New York on May 6th, 2021.
