Podcasts and audio content in general is no longer considered the second class citizens of the content world. More and more creators are venturing into podcasting as a medium to increase their reach. We saw the rise of some exceptional content from Indian creators in this field last year.
One of the most important creative skills is the ability to write. If you can write, you have the power to tell stories that can convert ideas into reality. Writers drive the message home, all the time. Writers are like the hub of the wheel that keeps the show going. Simply put, without writers, businesses can't survive and thrive.
The creative geniuses behind the illustrious templates and covers. The visual element is a large part of all pieces of content and it is the designers who make everything palatable and presentable.
The Buggles sang about the video's domination back in the 70s. With the rise of internet penetration and smartphones' growth, everyone is watching something or the other. Video content is on the radar of every brand and marketer, and so are the superstar video creators. We welcome video creators to submit their best work. If you know one, do nominate them.
In the information age, no other social media platform comes close to the impact of Twitter. Twitter has become a platform for ideas and opinions to emerge and get noticed in no time. Share your best tweets, or tell us about Twitter Titans, changing the narrative with powerful commentary that gets traction and drives the digital conversations.
LinkedIn has turned out to be the platform for massive organic growth as more and more people are interested in networking and scaling up their content. Many creators have carved out an unique following through LinkedIn.
These are the creators who through their work brought a positive change in the society. The creators who used their voice and resources to uplift and empower others. The creators who stood up for noble causes and gave back to the society through their efforts.
