What’s Social Star Awards about?
The Social Star Awards is a unique 24 hour event with an incredible 288 awards (one every 5 minutes) presented to the biggest stars and brands across the world. The Social Star Awards will take social influence to another level, from the 276 Awards given out via their social media partners during the 24-hour event to the 12 global awards unveiled in the room. At the Social Star Awards the world will shine a spotlight on Singapore to discover the world’s most popular stars in social media globally over the past 12 months in this 3-hour celebration event.
The inaugural Social Star Awards celebration will be set against the stunning backdrop of our unique venue, Marina Bay Sands, which will be transformed into an interactive spectacle for an evening of truly memorable moments. With the Hollywood A-List on the red carpet and a four-course meal from official Academy Awards Chef Wolfgang Puck delivered by his talented team at CUT, Marina Bay Sands, being served to VIP guests, The Social Star Awards will have sealed its place as the ‘Oscars’ of social media.
The Awards show at Marina Bay Sands will also feature live performances from Aerosmith, CeeLo Green, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sky Blu, PSY and Blush (updated 2 May) – all of whom will also perform at the ultimate post-Awards concert weekend, The Singapore Social Concerts.
How YOU make a difference in the Social Star Awards!
The Social Star Awards are based on data from Starcount which uniquely aggregates and charts social media’s most popular stars and celebrities through the measurement of 1.7billion people’s social media activity across the 11 biggest social media networks – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Sina, Tencent, Youku, Renren, Mixi, Orkut & Vkontakte – in the world. Never before has there been a recognition and celebration of what the global social community like, follow, view, tweet and share each and every day.
At Starcount, it’s the fans who really count and Starcount has also launched the world’s first global fan celebration – Starcount Fan Charts. This ground breaking App allows fans to be recognized and rewarded for their existing behavior by earning rewards, badges, @mentions or follows from the stars they love. Every Twihard, Belieber, Red Devil and every fan in-between can join their stars Fan Chart at starcount.com to connect and be counted.
Starcount uniquely ranks and charts fans based on their individual social behavior by awarding points for every tweet, share, view and comment about the individual stars they love. From Lady Gaga to Coca Cola to Barack Obama, Starcount will identify their biggest fans every day – a true celebration of fans the world over.
Starcount is also searching for our shortlist’s Superfans; the fan who between now and 9th May likes, shares, posts, re-tweets and views their Stars social content more than any other fan on the planet. Not only will these Superfans receive an award themselves during the 24 hour Social Stars event but some will also be in with a chance of receiving their Award from their Superstar.
