The jury selection was based on each professionals recognized expertise, the references received from their peers, their passion for social media, and their geographic location. Together, they will honor the best social media marketing practices, define standard practices, and establish the standard of ethics that will foster the long term growth of the profession.

Social Media Marketing is not revolutionary. It is evolutionary." says Co-Founder & President, Mr. Bastien Beauchamp. "It remains faithful to the principals of the founders of our industry: Albert Lasker, David Ogilvy, and Bill Bernback. These founders felt strongly that a company should always care about its brand and its reputation, always try to build a brand that is truthful to its product, understand its consumers, and communicate with personality. These marketing fundaments don't change and The Bees Awards 2013 Jury reflects the fact that large marketing agencies not only evolve in their practices but will also be challenged every day by small specialized social media agencies."
