BloggerAwards-New-sizeThe National UK Blog Awards are set to return for a second time in 2015, offering a unique opportunity for bloggers from the health industry to be recognised nationwide.

The first ever National UK Blog Awards took place in April and achieved huge success with over 900 bloggers entering the awards and 16,000 members of the public voting to determine which blogs deserved a finalist spot. Entries are accepted in a total of 14 categories; as well as healthcare other categories include education, lifestyle and events, whilst members of the public can also nominate their favourite individual or company blogger.

Gemma Pears, director of the National UK Blog Awards, said: “Blogging is growing increasingly important in the UK; it’s a great way to position yourself as an expert in your field to build your credibility, as well as being able to showcase your knowledge whether you’re blogging as an industry professional or simply because you love to write.

“Whether your blog is your business, a hobby or it’s part of your daily working tasks, a good blog can really help develop your client’s trust and helps close the gap between the ‘you’ and ‘ them’.”

The UK Blog Awards are on the look-out for expert judges from the health industry to help decide which bloggers will be announced as finalists prior to the awards evening in April 2015.

You can enter your own blog or nominate a blog at from Monday 1 September 2014, with entries closing on Friday 31 October.
