To celebrate our 3rd Anniversary, we decided to give out community awards recognizing the many creative professionals in the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
We choose our nominees based on their overall quality of work, community involvement, level of activity on social media. We also try our best to represent nominees from DC, MD, and VA as well as different countries in South Asia and both males and females. Finally, we consider if they have taken the initiative to work with us, interact and engage with our content and if we can personally vouch for their work. We leave the voters choice option to give everyone a chance and in past years, voters choice nominees have won.
Our followers had the opportunity to vote for their favorite creatives by commenting on their handle under the Instagram posts.
