Guess what season it is? It’s award season!

Now that those pesky Oscars are over, we can focus on the award ceremony search professionals actually look forward to all year long — The U.S. Search Awards.

This 2015 U.S. Search Awards will be held in Las Vegas (during PubCon, of course) on October 7. 

Nominations are now open in more than 20 categories and will remain open until July 17, 2015. I’m sure July sounds really far away but… well, we all know how quickly the months get away from us. Especially when the sun comes out. (Spring? You’re coming back, right?)

We were thrilled to win the U.S. Search Award for “Best Integrated Campaign” in 2013 for our work with the New York Council on Problem Gambling’s KnowTheOdds campaign, and last year were honored to be finalists in two agency categories – with our branding & content manager Janae DeRusso a finalist for Young Search Professional.

We’re submitting our work again this year, and so should you!
