This year’s Online Influence Awards, the UK’s leading celebration of the best bloggers, vloggers and digital storytellers, will take place on Friday 20 November, 5-7pm.
While the impact of COVID-19 has meant a move away from a physical event to an online extravaganza, Vuelio has taken the opportunity to reevaluate all aspects of the awards, from nominations and shortlisting to the announcement of winners, ensuring every part of the industry is recognised.
The launch follows the publication of the annual UK Influencer Survey, which revealed that one in five (19%) influencers say it is now their main source of income – indicating an increasing number of professional influencers. On the brand side, a recent study from TopRank Marketing found that 63% of marketers agree they would have better results if they included an influencer marketing programme.
To expand our recognition of this burgeoning industry, the 2020 all-virtual event invites influencers, as well as their fans, friends and supporters, to nominate themselves. A shortlist will be drawn from those that demonstrate the highest quality of content and impact, which will be reviewed by a judging panel of industry experts. The process is designed to be as inclusive as possible from start to finish, highlighting and celebrating true talent within the influencer community.
Entrants to this year’s awards can use any channel in their role as an influencer, from blogging and vlogging to Instagramming and Podcasting. The 16 categories for this year’s Online Influence Awards are:
Arts & Entertainment
Food & Drink
Health & Fitness
Travel & Leisure
PR & Comms
Cause-led influencer campaign
