Shorty Awards are not just for celebs! Ordinary (…or extraordinary!) people can win them too! Your fave tP fansites that have a Twitter account are eligible, so please consider submitting a nomination for them in the fansite category as a thank you for all their hard work over the years!

Feel free to reblog this and suggest more tP fansites that have Twitter accounts.
Also, since fake accounts are eligible and we have a few of those around in tribute to various characters from The Pretender, why not show them some Shorty Award love too. :)
#ThePretender category (specially created!)
2014 has come and you’ve got a few minutes to spare? Here’s your chance to do something to give back to the creators/actors from The Pretender! It’s as simple as sending a Tweet!
The Shorty Awards are for the best in social media, but for now we will focus our efforts on Twitter, as it is simple.
Since Twitter users can be nominated, The Pretender fans now have a chance (that we didn’t have before) to show our tP family of stars who are on Twitter that, for one, we appreciate their presence there and we want the rest of the world to see how awesome they are.
Each person only needs to send one Tweet to submit a nomination in any category.
After you ensure your nomination is showing up (by checking the official ShortyAwards website in the page for the nominee- it may take a while to show up) then the best you can do is promote the nominee link so others can tweet a nomination to add to the votes.
If we can manage to get our fave tP peeps in the top 4, then the judging panel will have a tP personality among the finalists as they decide on the winner - however this only applies if the nominee fills out their profile at the Shorty Awards site. If the nominee does not fill out a profile, then they can only win an award if they get the most votes/nominations, called the vox populi award.
Something to be aware of: we can only nominate persons who are on Twitter and you can only post nominations if you have a Twitter account because you need to either tweet directly from your Twitter account in the specific format for the nomination or be signed in to tweet from the ShortyAwards website.
Feel free to visit the official Shorty Awards site for all the details and most importantly the rules: http://shortyawards.com/rules
Here are some sample Tweets (140 characters is the max) you can send directly from Twitter, to submit your nominations:
