About the awards mechanism
BritMums has a two-tiered judging system — incorporating public votes and a Judging Panel. In this way, the awards reward those Influencers who, through high-quality content creation, have won a wide audience, while also allowing those who are just starting to build their brand to also gain recognition.
Find the one that best fits your blog and social media.
