As sponsors and co-judges of the fantastic Countryside Blogger Awards, we were thrilled to be part of this event and both judges (Our MD, Ashley and Sam Hobden of Hay-net) were by the blogging talent celebrating rural life, from farming through to country style and fashion.
The Countryside Awards, which splintered from the annual Equestrian Blog Awards for the first time this year, saw a 50% peak in public entries and public voting on previous years, rewarding its creator and judge, Sam Hobden’s decision to run them separately going forward:
The ultimate winners are listed below, alongside the judges’ comment;
COUNTRYSIDE BLOGGER AWARD WINNER 2019:
“This blog ticked all the boxes with a superb mix of content and imagery celebrating the countryside. A beautifully presented blog, well-written content and easy to navigate with an active and engaging social media presence.”
“A relatively new blog on the block, but author’s warmth and passion for her life on an Exmoor farm shone through. An exciting blog to watch for the future.”
FARMING BLOGGER OF THE YEAR:
“Taking a completely different stance on farming, the content is well-written and blog content executed with immense thought and lots of personality.”
COUNTRY STYLE & INTERIOR BLOGGER OF THE YEAR:
” A slick and stylish blog with a well-laid framework of content and inspirational blog posts which conveyed countryside style from wardrobe through to the home and more.”
The pool of prizes includes a £250 cash prize, trophies and marketing support from Haynet.
Well done to all everyone who entered and to all the finalists and the ultimate winners – we were overwhelmed with the sheer amount of talent and diversty!
The focus now turns to our sister awards, the Equestrian Blogger/Vlogger Of The Year Awards powered by our agency with both judges turning their attention to the equestrian sector.
