Facebook150Facebook has announced the 2016 Facebook Awards. Entering its fifth year, the Facebook Awards celebrate the best creative work being shared on the Facebook platform. More businesses are using Facebook and Instagram to connect with audiences and tell stories than ever before and the FB Awards showcase the power of Facebook and Instagram as creative canvases. The 2015 awards represented our biggest and most inspiring creative collection yet. Facebook reviewed over 2,700 submissions from 160 countries that offered a snapshot of the state of creativity and innovation across Facebook, Instagram and the entire industry. With so many countries outside the US submitting their work for the 2015 Awards, it was clear we had to further internationalize this year's awards so we could celebrate more work in more countries. But more internationalization is only one of the new things we are doing this year.
