2013 RIZMY Nominees


Congratulations to all of the nominees!

Categories are cross-referenced to a weighted scale and advanced Social Insights Algorithm to ensure a level playing field for all brands participating, big or small. Aside from the usual primary elements that go into formulating a brand's RSMI score - Influence, Sentiment and Engagement - there will be a secret element added into the mix to prevent brands from predicting top brands based on past quarterly trends.

Best of luck, and we hope to see you all at FDMS!
