I was invited yesterday to receive my award at the “Middle East Social Media Festival 2017” under the category “Top Social Media Blogger”. The MESMA (Middle East Social Media Award) “rewards individuals in various categories from the country the “Middle East Social Media Festival” is held in, who are using social media for business in fresh and innovative ways”.

The winners are determined through an online survey sponsored by Ipsos MENA, asking hundreds of marketing experts to vote for each category. The finalists in my categories were Lana el Sahely (L’armoire de Lana) and Anthony Rahayel (No Garlic No Onion).

This is the third edition of the “Middle East Social Media Festival. My friend and blogger Jimmy Ghazal, aka Techie Dad, also won the “Top Social Media Expert” award. You can check out all the winners [here].
