With Lloyd as the title sponsor, and the machinery of one of India's top magazines driving it, the Lloyd OSM Awards will be seen as the 'OSCARS' of the social media world.

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.

"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
