The Blogosphere Awards are back, and we want YOU to nominate your favourite bloggers and brands.
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? Which brand campaign really caught your attention this year? We want (and need) to know!
Last year’s event saw more than 10,000 influencers nominated and the night itself had a social reach of more than 8,000,000. This year, we’re going BIGGER!
There are now TWENTY-FIVE categories in the awards this year, including The Blogosphere Network award and the Blogosphere influencer of the year award. The winners of each category will be featured in issue 21 of the magazine, with the Blogosphere influencer of the year winner taking the FRONT COVER. Yes, you heard us right, if you win influencer of the year, you’ll be our August issue cover star.
So, what are you waiting for?!
Nominate in the Blogosphere Awards 2019
The rules and frequently asked questions…
We’ve added ten brand categories to our awards this year, meaning you can nominate brands based on their work with influencers and how successful their campaigns have been. Please note, in order to nominate a brand for an award you MUST provide evidence of the impact of the campaign. This can be in the form of sales figures, engagement on social media (likes, comments, tweets) etc.
The 15 influencer categories have stayed the same for this year.

You can nominate influencers and brands for each award here on our website from 8am on February 1st. It is not necessary to nominate influencers and brands for every category, just nominate for the ones you have favourites in. You can nominate yourself for an award. There is no minimum follower requirement to be nominated.
Nominations will close on March 1st, so make sure you let us know your favourites before then!
Our editorial team will go through all of the nominations, and put together a shortlist of five nominees for each award. Finalists will be chosen for each award based on a variety of categories (writing style, photography, design and online presence for influencers, diversity, creativity, quality and ROI for brands). Influencers and brands will not be shortlisted based on the number of nominations they have, it will be based on the overall quality of their content.
The shortlist will be announced on April 1st and will be open to public vote until May 1st. 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%.
The winners of each award will be announced during an awards ceremony in London on May 23rd. Finalists 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.
The winners of each award will be interviewed by the Blogosphere editorial team in London in early June. Each winner will feature in issue 21 of the magazine, with the Blogosphere Influencer of the year winner taking the FRONT COVER. Good luck!
Nominations close on March 1st, the shortlist will be announced on April 1st, winners will be announced on May 23rd.
