Hookedblog on twitter may have seen us tweeting about reaching the final stages of the UK Blog Awards 2016. There were 2,000 blogs selected this year and the #UKBA16 team counted 73,352 votes that were cast during the public voting round in January. Thanks to everyone who voted for us in this round and helped us get shortlisted for not one but two categories this year, Best Art & Culture Blog and Best Photography Blog.
It's now the second year that we have been nominated for the UK Blog Awards. Our 2015 nomination for the Art & Culture Blog category saw us make it through the public vote and Hookedblog was one of ten blogs in the category shortlisted for the award. On the night we unfortunately didn't win the top spot but we were Highly Commended by the judges in this category alongside Natasha Nutall's blog Graphique Fantastique.
