All nominations will be submitted by the peers of those individuals on social media (e.g. Tiktok, Instagram, etc.), herein referred to as ‘The People’. The People will be allowed one (1) nomination per category within the designated nomination period. Nominees will then be voted on amongst the nominees within their category and narrowed down to the top 5. Nominees may not vote for themselves. The top 5 within each category will then be voted on by The People once again, and the winner will be announced on stage during the Cheer Choice Awards. The top 5 nominees will be asked to attend the ceremony.
Nominations must be submitted based on the following criteria:
Positivity and impact on others:
Unique and positive impact on their viewers, quality and originality of the content and overall influence within their niche as well as engagement and overall social experience.
Effectiveness & use of the platform:
Overall effectiveness of the work—did it achieve the desired objectives and results? What impact was made as a result of this effort?
