UK Blog Awards date announced

The National UK Blog Awards will provide an opportunity for bloggers from the education industry to be recognised nationwide

Entries for the National UK Blog Awards will open on Monday 1 September 2014. 

The first ever National UK Blog Awards took place in April and saw over 900 bloggers entering the awards and 16,000 members of the public voting to determine which blogs deserved a finalist spot. 

Alongside the category for the education industry, bloggers will have the chance to enter into 13 other categories including events, health, lifestyle and food and drink, while members of the public can also nominate their favourite individual or company blogger. 

Gemma Pears, director of the National UK Blog Awards, said: “The UK Blog Awards provide a unique opportunity to be acknowledged and recognised as a true knowledge provider within your industry. 

“Blogging is growing increasingly important in the UK; it’s a great way to position yourself as an expert in your field to build your credibility, as well as being able to showcase your knowledge whether you’re blogging as an industry professional or simply because you love to write. 

“Awards are a hugely powerful marketing tool. They give you and your business immediate credibility and set you apart from the industry norm. 

“Whether your blog is your business, a hobby or it’s part of your daily working tasks, a good blog can really help develop your client’s trust and helps close the gap between the ‘you’ and ‘ them’.” 

You can enter your own blog or nominate a blog at www.blogawardsuk.co.uk from Monday 1 September 2014, with entries closing on Friday 31 October. 

The UK Blog Awards are on the look-out for expert judges from the education industry to help decide which bloggers will be announced as finalists prior to the awards evening in April 2015.
