Recognizing outstanding achievement in creatively & digitally promoting the St. Louis Cardinals

Digital technology and social media are changing how we connect and engage with one another. Every day throughout Cardinals Nation, Cardinals fans are taking to social media and other online platforms to celebrate the best team in baseball.

The St. Louis Cardinals have developed the For Really Entertaining Digital Award to recognize the amazing creativity and unmatched passion St. Louis Cardinals fans exhibit online in helping promote the St. Louis Cardinals.

The St. Louis Cardinals have established this special award to recognize extraordinary achievement in the developing art-form of online video, mobile based entertainment and social media posts that celebrate the St. Louis Cardinals. The team has formed the St. Louis Cardinals Academy of Mobile Picture Arts & Social Media Sciences, an elite group of dedicated Cardinals front office staff committed to consuming large quantities of digital content produced by avid fans, players and others, in order to identify the most entertaining and engaging content worthy of recognition.

Winners will be announced on Cardinals Insider, the team's television show and highlighted on this page. Winners will be awarded the statuette, officially named the For Really Entertaining Digital Award, nicknamed the #CardsFREDAward.
