For questions about the awards contact Info@iammomsummit.com with questions.

Honorary Chairpersons: Linda and Richard Eyre - Through their 50 published books, TV talk-show hosting and guest appearances, websites, and speaking across the country and in more than 50 other nations, the Eyres have been at the forefront of a movement to strengthen families amidst cultures and societal norms that are moving in opposite directions. While their prime focus has been writing and speaking, the Eyres are no strangers to social media. They have more than 2 million Facebook Followers (@MyFamilyIs). But as Richard says, “We’re waning while others are waxing, and we want to be a catalyst to younger Social Influencers who care about families,” and Linda adds “We’re happy to lend our name to awards that recognize and reward media that strengthens families.”

Press Release

PRESS RELEASE (authorized for distribution January 6)

___________ has been nominated for the first annual Family Is Social Media Award in the

category of ________.

Early last year, The Richard and Linda Eyre Family Is Awards were established to recognize

social media influencers whose online content best celebrates commitment, popularizes

parenting, bolsters balance and validates values. Nominations were collected for the first annual

awards to be presented in February of this year. Since then, hundreds of sites/handles/channels have been nominated and screened by an expert panel of judges, and the finalists have now been released(10-15 finalists in each category: Blogs, Websites, Podcasts, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.) Two awards will be given in each category, a judges’ award, and a people’s choice award.

Online voting is now open and you are invited to vote for finalists from each category. Winners will receive an exquisite etched crystal statuette designed and donated by the OC Tanner company. The judges’ choice winners will include a modest cash grant.

See the list of finalists and cast your vote at awards.family.is. Make your voice heard and be part of this effort to recognize those whose online content is most helpful to parents and families.

Jamie Taylor, founder of the I Am Mom Summit and co-chairman of the awards says “We hope the net result will be additional good ideas and helpful information that will benefit us all as we strive to do better on the most important relationships in our lives.”
