Rising Stars: Announcing Our #SMWReporter Winners From Nokia


Partnering with Nokia, we are enhancing your opportunity to take part in SMW14 this February. From powering SMW Live and our new Official Networking App to taking Milan, Bangalore, Lagos, and New York by storm, Nokia is really creating unique opportunities for our attendees. Taking this to a new level a couple of weeks ago, we gave you the opportunity to become a Social Media Week Reporter with Nokia.

With some incredible submissions streaming in from all over the globe, we knew that the selected reporters would provide an incredible experience for us all as we follow along.

These lucky winners have been invited to leave their homes and travel to SMW NYC to cover the events armed with the imaging powerhouse that is a Nokia Lumia. Without further ado, meet our SMW Reporters, and keep up with them by using #SMWReporter throughout SMW14!

  1. Estelle Kiora, from Singapore
    Estelle is a self-proclaimed taste-maker, aspiring entrepreneur, and a Singapore Top 10 Blogger, all making her perfect as a SMW Reporter. See what made us choose her to help make SMW NYC a happier place:

  2. Humara Kausar, from Toronto, Canada
    Another entrepreneur, Humara does some incredible social media marketing for @GNCCanada and herself. And we hear she’s an avid fan of sushi and BBQ, both of which will be in abundance during her stay at SMW NYC. Humara created a series of Vines for her submissions — and then compiled them into one overview below, which we loved:

  3. Anthony Almanzar, from Albuquerque, New Mexico
    Anthony took the challenge of being a reporter literally and knocked our socks off. His video submission was sharp, smart, and engaging — which makes sense since he describes himself as the love child of Jon Stewart and Selena.

We can’t wait to welcome our three winners to SMW NYC, and we want to thank you all for participating! The submissions were incredible and the competition steep. If you’re in New York this SMW14, then, make sure you introduce yourself to our SMW Reporters. Our three winners, Humara, Anthony, and Estella, will be joined by Akshay Aggarwal and Giridhar Chandrasekar to give us a total of five SMW Reporters, and giving you full coverage of SMW NYC!
