Further to recent news that the Countrystyle and Equestrian Blogger of the Year Award have separated into two sectors, it is now time to concentrate on celebrating bloggers that write from the fields and farms.
Hosted by Haynet, the Countryside Blogger of the Year Award will continue to work together with Ashley Rossiter from MirrorMePR who will assist in judging the awards. They aim to recognise top class bloggers writing content with a genuine following and the heart of the countryside at its core.
On Tuesday 13th August 2019, the finalists in the Countryside Blogger of the Year Award will be announced through its dedicated Instagram channel, with the winner being announced on Thursday 22nd August 2019. Judges will look at all bloggers who they feel fall into the countryside category independently, together with bloggers being invited to put their blog forward. If you would like your rural lifestyle blog to be considered for judging in the Countryside Blogger of the Year Award, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information by Sunday 4th August 2019:

Judging criteria will look at genuine and authentic blogs that are well written, rounded, interesting and have relevant content presented to their audience with a unique personality. Finalists should have a connection with their readers and judges will take into consideration social etiquette, post content, the use of product placement and overall engagement.
