Announcing the 2016 BiBs shortlist! #BiBs2016

We’re delighted to announce this year’s crop of shortlisted Brilliance in Blogging bloggers and social influencers. “Brilliance” means so many things. In your nominations you told us what it means to you: talented bloggers always ready with an encouraging word or advice, gorgeous sites, recipes that inspire us, or commentary that gets us involved.

Congratulations to the shortlisted bloggers and a big round of applause to everyone who was nominated and nominated their favourites. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself up for awards and trimming down the list was harder than ever this year.

What happens next?

Vote for your favourite in each category, or — if you’re shortlisted — encourage your followers to vote for you. Five finalists will chosen in each category. Finalists will be announced on 27th May.

We’ll toast all the finalists at the BiBs party on 24th June at BritMums Live and announce the winners at the ceremony that night.

You can find more information on how the BiBs are judged here.

All shortlisted bloggers will receive an email shortly with more information and links to your badges!

Help your favourites – vote for them! Voting closes Wednesday 18th May at midnight.
