Awards to acknowledge stellar work by individuals, brands and corporations across range of categories including travel

Outlook Group, India’s premier weekly newsmagazine has introduced Lloyd OSM Awards to recognise the achievers in the field of social media.  The award has been introduced to mark the 20th anniversary celebrations of the magazine. The Launch event witnessed the presence of dignitaries such as Ms. Shilpa Shetty, Ms. Advaita Kala, Mr. Shashi Tharoor, Mr. Dilip Cherian etc.

The motive behind the award is to recognize and reward the outspoken, the outstanding, and the outliers of the social media universe, who have added to the depth and diversity of the discourse with their initiatives and interventions. This will further acknowledge stellar work by individuals, brands and corporations across a range of categories: from politics, policy and public services, to film, food and fashion-and travel, sports and more.

“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  Indranil Roy , Executive Director, Outlook Group

I believe Outlook is a magazine with an extra edge – we seek to push the pace with hard-hitting stories that others often chose to ignore. The online world by its very nature is anti-establishment – like good journalism should be. With social media now beginning to play a greater role in our lives and news space, we feel the Lloyds OSM awards will go a long way in recognising the immense (and often hidden) talent in social media.” said Krishna Prasad, Editor in Chief, Outlook Group
