The Amara Interior Blog Awards 2017 campaign with involve numerous key dates to remember throughout the coming months. This helpful timeline will ensure you don’t miss a thing throughout this year’s awards, from nominations to the unveiling of the shortlists…
This is the first stage of the Amara Interior Blog Awards and marks the launch of the new awards’ season. At the nomination stage blogs need to be nominated in the appropriate category and each blog requires only one nomination to go through to the voting stage. Please ensure that the blog you are nominating is in the correct category by reading our judging criteria before you make your nomination. We reserve the right to move any blog into another category if we feel it would be better suited elsewhere and any non-interior related blogs nominated will be removed from the awards process.
After four weeks of nominations this stage of the awards will close allowing us to collate all of the nominated blog’s information ready for the all-important voting stage. All blogs at this point will have been informed of their nomination ready for voting to begin.
The voting stage of the Amara Interior Blog Awards is the key interactive stage of the campaign. This is the time for all nominated bloggers to pull out all the stops to ensure their blog receives enough votes to keep them in the top five of their category. The next five weeks are the ideal time for bloggers to share their nomination on social media and with their email list, to ensure their loyal followers know they need as many votes as possible to make it onto the shortlist. If you follow any interior blogs religiously and want them to make it through to the final stage, now is the time to vote for them.
After five weeks and what is sure to be tens of thousands of votes the voting stage will close, it is then time to count all the votes to determine who has made the shortlists which will be announced in just one week’s time.
12:00pm BST – 18th September
Once the votes have been counted, the six blogs with the most votes in each category will go through to the shortlist. The 60 top blogs will be announced on 18th September and it is at this stage that we will ask all nominated bloggers to vote for their favourite blog in the shortlists, which will be the blog which will go on to win the coveted Bloggers’ Choice Award. At this point in the awards our expert judging panel will begin exploring each blog on the shortlist ready for the Judging Day when the winners will be selected.
Taking place at London’s Citizen M hotel, the Judging Day gathers together every member of our expert judging panel to assess each blog on the shortlist and select the 2017 Amara Interior Blog Awards winners. Each blog will be carefully examined against the judging criteria on the day to determine the most outstanding blog in each category and the results of the day will be kept tightly under wraps until the awards ceremony in just a few weeks’ time.
This year’s ceremony will take place at London’s new Design Museum on High Street Kensington where shortlisted bloggers, judges and sponsors will be in attendance to celebrate the best of the interior blogging industry. With a cocktail reception, sumptuous canapés and finally a live-streamed ceremony followed by more celebrations, the event marks the end of the 2017 Amara Interior Blog Awards and 14 new winners will have been crowned.
