A competiton to find FE's top 50 social media users has been launched to recognise those who have made a significant impact in the sector using 140 characters or fewer.

The contest has been established by Jisc, the not-for-profit organisation offering digital services and solutions for the FE and HE sectors, to identify individuals who have used Twitter, as well as other social media platforms such as Facebook, Periscope and Medium, to generate a positive impact or change within their organisation. 

The list of the 50 most influential FE social media users will be chosen by a panel of expert judges, including TES FE editor Stephen ExleyBob Harrison, Sarah Knight and James Clay. The final 50 will be announced at the Jisc Digifest which takes place from 2-3 March in Birmingham. TES will be the FE media partner for the event.

Tom Mitchell, Jisc's group social media manager, said: "If you, or someone you know, has used social media to generate a positive impact or change within your organisation, this is your opportunity to shout about it to the world."

The deadline for entries is 3 February. More information on the competition can be found by using the #jisc50social hashtag on Twitter, or by visiting the competition homepage.
