We have also made the decision to separate the Individual Blog Awards from the Business Blog Awards. You can find the Business Blog Awards and all of the details over here.

What type of entrant am I?

INDIVIDUALS: From 2019 onwards we are classifying an Individual Blogger as a blogger who’s blogging content is created and managed under a blog name and for the purposes of that blog alone (i.e. not on behalf of a brand.) This can be for business or pleasure. If your blog has 3 or more contributors then you must enter the GROUP category.

COMPANIES: If you are blogging on behalf of a company or organisation then you must enter the UK Business Blog Awards. From 2019 onwards a Company Blog is defined as a blog that is created and managed on behalf of a brand, business or organisation. Any size of company can enter into this category from SME, charities, enterprises to large branded companies and enterprises.
