The Shorty Awards honors social media influencers on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Youtube, and many more. The Shortys are the first and most important awards that recognize social media as a powerful tool. Past winners include many celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Tyler Oakley, Casey Neistat, Hannibal Buress, Malala Yousafzai, Jenna Marbles, J.K. Rowling, Adele, and DJ Khaled. In its 10th edition, the Lebanese Snapchatter named Georgio Bassil, who goes by the name of Georgio Copter, is nominated for The Snapchatter of the Year award. Georgio’s snaps introduce you to his world where the cartoonish Copter monsters follow him around. His amazing drawing skills bring to life creepy and cute monsters. Last year, Georgio won the Snapchat Artist of the Year award from the first edition of the Ghosties Awards which will be held annually. Vote for him
