Date for the BiB Awards 2017

About the BiBs
The BiBs highlight the very best of lifestyle blogging by parents, recognising the most creative, inventive and compelling blogging and social media work of the year. Last year more than 210,000 nominations and votes were cast – making it one of the UK’s most popular blogger awards!
New this year
This year we’ve streamlined the process. Instead of naming both a shortlist and finalist list, we will announce an expanded number of finalists. There will still be the opportunity for you to both nominate yourself and others and then vote via multiple choice for top bloggers in each category.
BiBs 2017 nominations open Wednesday 10 May. Ladies & gentlemen, start your engines…
And to answer your big question: Yes, you can nominate yourself!
Here’s how it works:
Stage 1: Nominations: Bloggers nominate themselves or others in one (or several) of the 11 BiB categories (browse the categories now to see which you fit into; the 12th award — BritMums Choice — is a non-voting category). Nominations are open until 23:59 on 7 June. Drum up support by asking people to nominate you, tweeting #BiBs2017 and putting a badge on your site. (Badges coming soon!)
Stage 2: Finalists: 8 people are named in the 11 categories. This list is made up of the 4 with the most nominations and 4 chosen by BritMums/judges. The Finalists will be announced on Monday 19th June 2017.
Stage 3: Voting: The community votes for their favorites on the Finalists from Monday 19 June through 23:59 2 July.
Stage 4: Winners will be announced on the evening of 30 September 2017 at the BiBs City Cruises Party at BritMums Live/#BML17. Everyone attending BritMums Live plus all finalists are invited to attend the BiBs City Cruises Party from 18:00 – 21:00! (Sorry, no guests or plus-ones.)
