The Plutus Foundation and the Plutus Awards Executive Committee are excited to share with you the categories (chosen by the Plutus Awards Panel) for the 9th Annual Plutus Awards!
Awards season begins now. Independent online publishers who focus on money and financial issues have the opportunity to enter their projects for consideration for the Plutus Awards this year.
Publishers whose works are to be considered include bloggers, vloggers, YouTubers, podcasters, and anyone else who has a presence on the internet and a focus on personal finance, investing, or any number of financial topics. Public nominations are also accepted. In September, we will announce the Finalists in all categories.
Finalists, as well as the financial media community at large, are invited to attend the awards ceremony, to be held at FinCon18 in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, September 29, 2018.
Since the conclusion of last year’s awards, the Plutus Awards Executive Committee and Panel have been working to make sure this year’s categories are a reflection of the growth of the financial media community, particularly for multimedia. Several new awards categories reflect the changing nature of the community. If you want to have a say in the future of the Plutus Awards, be sure to join the Plutus Awards Panel next year!
Sponsorships for some categories are still available. If you are interested, please contact us about a partnership.
