2010 Lotus Awards add Mobile and Social Media Awards

The annual Lotus Awards is a competitive advertising awards show that celebrates creative excellence in British Columbia. The 2010 Lotus Awards Show will occur on November 10th in Downtown Vancouver and the deadline for submitting entries is August 13th.

Established in 1989, the Lotus Awards show was founded by the West Coast advertising community to recognize outstanding creative work of individuals, companies and agencies in BC.

Originally just an “advertising” show, the Lotus Awards have been expanded in recent years to include design, interactive, and direct mail. And later today organizers will announce that they are adding some new ‘tech’ categories this year including Best in Mobile Marketing, Best use of Social Media Channel, and Best use of Social Media Multi Channel.
