Student blogger? Online commentator? Maybe you run a blog for your university society and want your work to be recognised by those in the know?  

If yes you’ve got just over two weeks left to get your application in for the UK’s first ever cross-sector blogger awards, before the deadline on 1st December.

The National Blog Awards UK is looking to champion the best bloggers in the UK, promoting best practice and encouraging networking in this burgeoning, innovative industry. 

With over 30% more bloggers active today than in 2010, it’s no longer just a hobby – in fact, if you play your cards right it could even land you the job of your dreams. Just look at Arianna Huffington, Perez Hilton and the real people behind Gawker, Jezebel, TMZ, Mashable et al. Wildly successful doesn’t even cover it.  

Bloggers can enter online in one of 12 categories, with winners being selected by esteemed judges (including Perry McCarthy, the original Stig from Top Gear!) who will recognise the best blog by an individual and an organisation. 

There are also three extra awards are up for grabs - Best Young Blogger, Most Innovative Blog and the Digital Shoreditch Dedicated Blog Award. 

And of course, as is the nature of blogging, you can write about whatever you want... whether it’s reviewing your extensive computer game library or documenting your travels in the Outback or sharing your homemade vegan dessert recipes. We’re guessing the more creative and original the better.

Entry is free, and you can enter online here . The public will be able to vote from 2nd December to 13th January, and then a panel of judges will choose the final shortlist from the most popular blogs. 

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner in London on the 25th April 2014. All shortlisted entrants are expected to attend the event, creating an unrivalled opportunity to network and share ideas.

UKBA14 founder Gemma Pears says: “We feel the blogging world deserves this recognition.  In a very short space of time, bloggers have become a real force to be reckoned with and are increasingly recognised as a source of inspiration for consumers and traditional media alike. We hope that this event not only raises the profile of the industry, but creates an unrivalled opportunity for bloggers to meet up and share knowledge.”

So, if you have an itching suspicion that your blog could in fact be the next Huffingon Post-esque success story, you’d better get your entry in quickly. Good luck!
