Country Style and Equestrian Blogger of the Year Awards

Haynet is the host of the Country Style and Equestrian Blogger of the Year Awards. Together with equestrian, canine and country PR and digital marketing agency MirrorMePR who are sponsors and one of the judges of the award, we help recognise the wealth of creative thinking and writing skills that are out there.

The Country Style Blogger of the Year Award is held during the month of May with the Equestrian Blogger of the Year Award being held during October. The awards are promoted and an award ceremony is held through there Twitter Channel CSEBlogAwards. Announcements and news are also promoted through Haynet itself, its Twitter channel and the awards Facebook page.

The selection of finalists are made through the judges choosing ten bloggers. Finslaists are announced and then campaign for votes during a two week period. The winner and rising star are then announced after judges have taken into account 50% of the public vote during an online award ceremony. The winner received a £100 cash prize, a trophy, a twelve month advert linking to their blog through Haynet and a free dedicated business profile through the Equestrian Creative Network. The rising star award win marketing support from Haynet.

The judges work with criteria in mind that the blogs are well written, rounded, interesting and relevant content presented to their audience with a unique personality. The blogger needs to have a connection with their readers and this year the judges will also be taking into consideration social etiquette, post content, engagement and interaction.
