Who’s making an Outstanding Contribution in 2016?


mad blog awards outstanding contribution

We’ve been overwhelmed, once again, with the amazing number of nominations we’ve received in this year’s MAD Blog Awards.

Over FIVE MILLION people so far have seen our hashtag on Twitter, and we’ve seen many thousands of nominations and votes. It’s all very exciting!

Haven’t voted yet?

Head over to check out this year’s MAD Blog Awards finalists, and cast your vote here!

But once that’s done, we’d like you to nominate just once more this year…

Every year, we open nominations for a very special award: the Outstanding Contribution MAD Blog Award. This award celebrates those amazing, inspiring and fabulous bloggers who make an outstanding contribution to the blogging community.

We recognise, of course, that contribution comes in lots of different forms –

Maybe you’d like us to recognise someone who has overcome great personal challenges to share an important and inspiring story, driving change in their community?

Perhaps you’d like us to recognise someone who is always on hand to offer advice and support to fellow bloggers, or who helps new bloggers find their feet? Perhaps that person who always has time for a comment, or a share of a new bloggers’ posts?

Or maybe this year it will be time to recognise someone for their fundraising, or educational work?

Whatever form their outstanding contribution takes, we know the bloggers nominated for this very special award are people who give back more than most, and help make our community (and our world) a more positive, rewarding place for everyone.

How to Nominate

We’d like you to complete the nomination form below, and tell us who you think has made an outstanding contribution to the online community during the past 12 months. We aren’t necessarily looking for the most technically brilliant, or popular, or beautiful blogs – we want to know about bloggers who you think represent the very heart and soul of the online community. Of course, we know it is hard to narrow it down to just one name, so you can nominate up to THREE UK bloggers for this very special award.

Nominations will be open for just over TWO WEEKS, after which our judging panel will decide on 10 shortlisted bloggers, who will be invited to the MAD Blog Awards in September, along with a host of other special treats and surprises.

So what are you waiting for? Go nominate! 

Fill out my online form.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
