Announcing the very first Winerist Blogger Awards 2015!
We decided to launch the awards as a way of celebrating some of the best blogging talents in the wine, travel and food community. The category winners were awarded for producing quality content relating to their industry sector. We considered how they share their blog with the wider community; this could be engaging with readers in their comments section or interacting on social media platforms. We also took into account the bloggers' Alexa rankings and their blog posts published on third party sites.
There are awards for overall categories relating to the digital food and wine travel sector, such as food, travel and photography. We have several wine-related categories such as wine reviews and wine reviews, which reflect the breadth of topics being addressed in the digital community. Specific awards were also given for regional bloggers of excellence, who really get to the heart of what makes a travel destination so magical. We also felt it was important to recognise bloggers who have significantly grown in influence through their writing style or social engagement, which is reflected in the Breakthrough and Social Media awards.
