All December Long: Show Us Your #EmojisIRL, Win an iPad!Jade FurubayashiBlogger ExtraordinaireSimply Measured
2015 was a big year for social; Periscope and Meerkat launched, Pinterest introduced visual search, Instagram debuted standalone apps Layout and Boomerang, and the list goes on.
However, there was one update that stood above the rest, sweeping far and wide, that changed every single Tweet, pin, and post on the face of the planet…the new emojis.
In fact, emojis dominated our entire year! Domino’s got their own emoji-based delivery service, Finland released their own state-approved emoji pack, and, for the first time ever, Oxford Dictionaries even crowned their “word of the year” an emoji, rather than an actual, literal, English word (it was 😂)… So,we are crowning 2015 as “the year of the emoji.”
To celebrate, all December long, we’ll be giving you a steady dose of emoji-love via content and social media. But that’s not all… Beginning now until the end of December, we’re challenging you, people of the internet, to bring your favorite emojis to life. The #EmojisIRL contest winner will receive the brand new Apple iPad and a one-of-a-kind custom case. Trust us, we’ll have consolation prizes as well.
In order to enter, post a photo of you posing as your favorite emoji to either Twitter or Instagram using the #EmojisIRL hashtag. We will be selecting a winner on December 30th, so make your entry stand out! Here are a few examples from the Simply Measured team:
Stay tuned to Simply Measured for tons of emoji love this holiday season. We can’t wait to see your #EmojisIRL! Alright, now let’s 👀 what you 👩👧 and 👱👨 got!
