Fiona and Emma from Peachy HQ headed into London on Friday to see a lot of hard work come to fruition at the UK Blog Awards hosted at The Montcalm Hotel in Marble Arch.
The Alice in Wonderland theme coupled with headline sponsorship from Welsh based brand Go Compare, lead to over 350 bloggers stepping into a mystical 'WonderLland'. A themed bar, sponsored by Go Compare serving cocktails such as the 'I Saved Woo Hoo' (Strawberry Woo Woo), GoCojito (Mojito) and Billini (Bellini), sat in amongst beautiful blossom trees, a grinning Cheshire Cat and copious tea cups and toadstools!
Both Individual and Company blogs were named Winners and Highly Commended across 14 categories, taking in sectors such as Automotive, Fashion, Lifestyle, Food & Drink and Health as well as the category of PR, Marketing and Comms which was sponsored by Peachy PR and judged by Fiona alongside Alan Stevens of Media Coach.
Fiona and Emma presented the awards in our sponsored category to deserving winners Matthew Barby and MEF Minute.
The show itself was hosted by YouTuber Andy Samuels and saw Roman Kemp take to the decks to DJ throughout the show and after-party. The event was attended by press secured by Peachy PR including BBC Top Gear Magazine, ELLE, Wired, Visit London and GQ and saw the 350+ bloggers and attendees enjoy a fantastic night to celebrate achievement in blogging across the UK.
#UKBA15 become a Twitter trending topic thanks to the overwhelming excitement in the room and amongst nominated bloggers and their supporters. The 2015 UK Blog Awards has continued and surpassed the success of the inaugural awards of 2014 and paves the way for continued success and development into 2016.
