We are delighted to announce that entries for this year’s National UK Blog Awards are now open for the third successful year running, in association with ODEON Cinemas.
Blogs are becoming increasingly significant in all sectors owing to the new media landscape. With the popularity of the sharing community and peer to peer business, the trend for more personalised, authentic experiences has exploded.
The potential for social and digital influence is enormous, as new opportunities emerge for brands to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships with bloggers. Last year 2,500 individual and company blogs were entered into the UK Blog Awards, whereas this year we are expecting a far greater number of entries.
In addition to more interest, there will also be a total of 16 industry categories this year, an increase of 25% from last year for both individual professionals and companies. There are also two major additional awards up for grabs for the Most Innovative Blog and a dedicated Headline Award.
The winners will ultimately be recognised for their social media achievements through blogging and celebrated as experts in their field at an exceptional awards evening in April.
Gemma Newton nee Pears, Managing Director said “as the founder of these awards, I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing an increase in recognition for so many industry professionals who blog, both individually and as a company. Year on year, content creation and blogging is becoming more entwined in the media landscape and this is a fantastic opportunity to recognise and celebrate all this talent and knowledge”.
The theme of this year’s UK Blog Awards is “Best Of British” and you can enter your own blog or nominate a blog at www.blogawardsuk.co.uk with entries closing on Tuesday 15th December 2015 at 10.30pm.
