They are the big awards with the little bitty name: Nominations for the 2015 BiBs (aka the Brilliance in Blogging Awards) are now open!
BritMums highlights the best of parent lifestyle blogging in our BiB Awards. It recognises the most creative, inventive and compelling blogging of the year! Last year more than 200,000 nominations and votes were cast ? making it one of the UK?s most popular blogger awards.
This year we?ve trimmed the number of award categories for a more succinct list. If you?re not sure in which category to nominate yourself or someone else, check out the FAQ.
BiBs 2015 nominations are open until 12th April at midnight. Don?t be shy ? it?s time to blow your own horn and strut your stuff!
