News magazine, Outlook, will soon announce the launch of India's first social media awards.

The Outlook Social Media Awards or OSM Awards is the first initiative by a mainstream media organisation to honour the stars and superstars of the social media world, and will be an annual event.

Aimed at recognising and rewarding the Outspoken, the Outstanding, and the Outliers of the social media universe, OSM awards will acknowledge stellar work by individuals, brands and corporations across categories.

The OSM awards, in partnership with Creatigies Communciations, will be formally launched in New Delhi shortly. The launch event will see the nominees and the jury being announced.

"With OSM awards, we hope to bring the same level of integrity and credibility that 'Outlook' as a national media vehicle has built up and enjoyed over its first 20 years," said Krishna Prasad, Editor-in-Chief, Outlook.

"OSM awards to me is like creating the Oscar of Social Media. Team Outlook and Creatigies has spent endless hours to put the event process together which will honour the Social Media heroes among us." said Indranil Roy, President & Publisher, OutlookGroup.

"Creatigies has always prided itself on creating out-of-the box opportunities for brands and OSM awards is an exciting journey we are delighted to embark on with Outlook," said Navroze D. Dhondy, Founder & Managing Director, Creatigies. "We are confident that OSM will become the definitive and most 'awesome' awards in the social media space."

OSM Awards is powered by LLOYD.
