Global design and BIM software solutions provider, Vectorworks, Inc. has been honored by the inaugural Land8 Social Media Awards for Landscape Architecture.
Vectorworks was named a Top 10 Social Media Account for Allied Organizations, according to the Land8: Landscape Architects Network. In the Land8 awards, landscape architecture firms and individual landscape architects had 10 winners per category.
Land8 was originally founded as an online hub encouraging interactions between landscape architecture professionals but has since grown to an international community with over 1.5 million followers across Land8’s social media channels. The space not only attracts landscape architects, but also those interested in learning about the field of landscape architecture.
According to Matt Alcide, managing partner and editor-in-chief at Land8: Landscape Architects Network, “Vectorworks engages the landscape architecture community and features posts that support and promote the work of landscape architects. It’s this direct impact on the industry through social media that led them to winning.”
The award’s criteria for social media accounts included: visual excellence, influence, engagement and promotion of landscape architecture. The platforms under review could include public accounts for popular mediums, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and/or blogs.
“It’s a priority for our company to share quality content across social media and our blog, and we regularly post user-generated content from professional and student designers around the world, including their projects, accomplishments and successful workflows,” said Jeremy Powell, vice president of Marketing at Vectorworks. “We appreciate Land8’s recognition of this practice, as we seek to inspire and support landscape architects.”
