Blogosphere Blog Awards 2017
We’ve got an extra special announcement to make…this year we will be hosting the first EVER Blogosphere awards, and we want YOU to nominate your favourite bloggers.
Who’s the fashion blogger that inspires you to get creative with your own style? Whose photography has you endlessly scrolling through their Instagram feed? We want (and need) to know!
There are ten categories in the awards, including the eight different sections we have within the magazine, a community award and… drumroll please… the Blogosphere blogger of the year award. The winners of each category will be featured in issue 14 of the magazine, with the Blogosphere blogger of the year winner taking the FRONT COVER. Yes, you heard us right, if you win blogger of the year, you’ll be our September issue cover star.
You may be wondering what the Blogosphere community award entails, well let us tell you…We love engaging with all of you on social media, and wanted to create an award for the people who regularly interact with us, whether that’s through coming to our events, contributing to the magazine or even joining our Twitter chats. We will be keeping an eye out for our most engaged followers and the shortlist for this award will be chosen exclusively by our editorial team.
So, what are you waiting for?! Come back to this page on March 1st to nominate your favourite blogs, or even your own. We will be revealing the shortlist in May with an exclusive awards ceremony in late June to announce and celebrate the winners of each category.

A little bit more information…
Q. How do I nominate my favourite bloggers?
You can nominate bloggers for each award here on our website from March 1st. It is not necessary to nominate bloggers for every category, just nominate for the ones you have favourites in. You can nominate yourself for an award. Nominations will close on April 8th, so make sure you let us know your favourites before then!
Q. How will bloggers be shortlisted of each award?
Our editorial team will go through all of the nominations, and put together a shortlist of five bloggers for each award. Bloggers will be chosen for each award based on their writing style, photography, blog design and online presence. Bloggers will not be shortlisted based on the number of nominations they have, it will be based on the overall quality of their blog.
Q. How will the winners of each award be selected?
The shortlist will be announced on May 8th and will be open to public vote until May 22nd. The shortlist will also be voted upon by a panel. The panel’s decisions will make up 60% of the vote while the public vote will make up 40%.
Q. When and where will the winners of each category be announced?
The winners of each award will be announced during an awards ceremony on June 22nd. Shortlisted bloggers will be invited to attend and winners will be given their awards during the ceremony. Winners will also be announced on our Twitter profile, for anyone unable to attend the ceremony.
Q. What happens if I win an award?
Firstly, a massive congratulations! Secondly, you will be invited to an interview and photoshoot with the Blogosphere editorial team in London in early July. We will get in touch shortly after the awards to organise a time and date for this.
If you win Blogosphere blogger of the year, we will organise a full-day photoshoot and interview in London and it is vital that you are able to attend this. We will contact all potential shortlist bloggers in advance to ensure they are willing and able to commit to a full-day shoot.
Nominations will close on April 8th, the shortlist will be announced on May 8th, winners will be announced on June 22nd.
Nominations are now closed. Thank you.
