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.
