The Online Influence Awards 2020
The UK continues to adjust to and reflect on a volatile year, from the upheaval caused by COVID-19 to the fight for inclusivity forcing much-needed conversations and actions across the country.
Recognising these monumental societal shifts, we want to deliver the Online Influence Awards for 2020 in a safe, accessible and inclusive way.
This year, the awards will be entirely online, from the nomination process through to the judging day and the awards night itself.
Along with bringing the awards to your front room (black tie optional!), we’re revamping how we create our shortlists. With the aim of growing and diversifying the influencers we celebrate, nominations for each award will come from either the influencer themselves or their peers, fans and supporters.
Entrants will be required to provide their name, social media handles plus a reason why they should win. They will then need to select the top five skills they have as an influencer, which will generate a hidden score that has been curated using industry experts.
All of this information will be combined to give us shortlists across 14 categories: Arts & Entertainment, Beauty, Current Affairs, Disruptor/Changemaker, Fashion, Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, Interior Design, LGBTQ+, Lifestyle, Parenting, PR & Comms, Travel & Leisure and Newcomer.
This process should lead to a more inclusive awards with influencers from all channels and backgrounds competing side by side.
