Every nomination in the Sockies gets judged by a team of judges on specific criteria, the best are then sent forward to be finalists. The awards ceremony takes place in the RDS Concert Hall on May 25th.

Commenting on the awards, Claire O'Dowd of SpunOut.ie said, "We're really excited to be a part of this year's Sockies and can't wait to celebrate those who are on top of their social media game. These days so much of our lives are online and interactions via social media are becoming more and more important to the relationships we form with people, brands & services. Using social media platforms to be really truly engaging isn't easy and those who do it well deserve to be recognised."
